here comes the garlic
After last week's windstorm (we were without power for 6 days, lost a cute little Japanese maple tree we had in our yard, and have been cleaning up branches, limbs, and sticks for days now!!) we've been spending a lot of time outside. What a wonderful surprise when we pulled back some of the leaves that were on one of our garden beds to check on the garlic, and found several of the cloves we planted back in the Fall already sprouting up from under the soil! We covered them back up to keep them warm for a bit longer, but it seems Spring really is almost upon us! With the return of the gardening season, I'm hoping to get back to more regular blogging - this year, we're expanding the garden beds, planting much more than we did last year, and are really looking forward to a wonderful summer!
