Look what I did!
That's right! Rows of garlic, every single one of them is up and reaching for the sky. I'm so excited, I check in on them every few days. Sure, they're growing in rough rows that will probably need to be weeded once we get some sun, but I was in a hurry to put them in the ground so I worked with what I had (a run down garden full of dead plants and soil so wet it was almost mud). Considering I was a couple months late putting them in the ground, they look pretty good to me.
The rows are working out perfectly too. Garlic likes water, but not so much they sit in it and rot. You can see that the top part of the hills are dry while the bottom is still holding the water. Perfect!
The rest of this garden (we plan on having at least three garden areas) hasn't been weeded yet, but I need to get busy with that so I can put in my four blueberry plants and plan out my planting schedule. My goal is to have so much produce that I'm forced to give it away. Of course I shouldn't count my chickens before they're hatched but....ah hell, why not!
