pretending it's spring

So, I planted a few cloves of garlic.

And today, saw THIS!!!

Woo-hoo! So, my 1st garlic plant is coming up.
 It worked: I'm now stoked.

So, I highly recommend it.
Even if you never end up eating anything that you grow.
Tho' I bet you'll eat some of it.




  1. What a great idea.

    But the garlic is a fun idea.

    That is quite exciting.

    I've been wanting my very own kumquat tree for some time now, and I've got some fruit--and, therefore, incipient seeds--at home, so maybe...
