Last May I had decided to try a little gardening experiment and plant some garlic. Like, straight out of my fridge and popped into the ground. Surprisingly, it grew really well. Until it got hot. Then it just kind of withered away even though I told it how pretty it was and encourage it to stick around. I had intended to dig it up last fall to see how much it had grown, but, like all my other good intentions, it just didn't come to fruition.
I had read that you can plant garlic in February so I was totally ready to plant it in February. Then a washer lid fell on my face and I had to have surgery and blah blah blah....it didn't happen. It would have to wait until October, which would probably be better since that's when you're supposed to plant it.
On Saturday CG was tilling the garden so we can plant our early things and just happened upon a little surprise.
Can you see it?
Let's get a little closer.....
And a little bit closer.....
My favorite is the one that grew right through the leaf. And yes, I realize I'm a total nerd.
