it was our first year growing them and I suppose it was fairly successful. we got lots of little ones and a couple large ones. the one next to my foot is the prize-winner (and I wear a size nine). we'll grow these again, I believe. maybe mix some sand into the soil next time. I hear they like that.
today, it snowed. the garden is a different place now. plastic over hoops over two of the beds, beds filled with lettuces and other greens. the rest of the beds are in various states of being 'closed up' for the winter. deep leaf mulch, dead plants here and there.
the garlic almost went in the other day. at least we got all the bulbs separated. any day, now.
let's not even talk about the potted plants I ought to have tended to before the snow. and before the coming 25 degrees tonight. ah well. suppose I should at least reach my hands out and bring in the potted citrus and aloe. and so off I go.
