I sure enjoyed the snow this weekend.  Jasper and I played a lot in the fluffy stuff

All that you could see in my garden under the 4 inches were the tops of my garlic.

Yes, you can grow garlic.  It is super easy.  Just go to your local grocery story, pick up a bulb. I picked up the organic ones, just to be safe.  Don’t won’t any of those pesticides in my beds. Break some cloves off and plant with the little tips pointing up.  I covered with about 2 inches of dirt, added a little all purpose fertilizer.  And watch them grow. They take about 6 weeks to grow.

When the snow melts I am gonna dig me up some.

What about you? Anything interesting peeking out of the snow drifts in your garden?

Happy gardening in the snow!
