Garlic Sprouting

I removed a few plants from the containers on the patio.  The last spider plant hasn't liked some of the colder nights and was getting blacker and blacker from freezing.  The yellow petunias were really scraggly.  So, they went too.  Here are the remaining plants.


I watered the lettuce in the cold frame.  I also noticed these green sprouts.


My garlic is coming up.  I remember being concerned that last years crop hadn't sent up any sprouts in the fall.  That's not a problem this year.  I watered the garlic sprouts too.

  1. It looks as if your cold frame is going to keep supply you with 'goodies' for quite some time yet.

  2. I haven't seen any action from mine yet -- but perhaps I need to go and check!

  4. I have been a very neglectful gardener this fall, due to a large number of trips away and several other important projects that have needed to be done - but I'm considering throwing a few garlic cloves in the ground at this late date, just to see what they'd do. We've barely had any freezing weather yet, our temps are predicted to be in the 70's for the next several days, so why not? Glad your (more appropriately timed) garlic looks like it's off to a great start.

    1. I read somewhere that as long as the ground isn't frozen, you can plant any type of bulb that you would in the fall up until the end of the year. They need some time in the ground before growing in the spring but the not frozen soil is the main factor for getting them in. Give it a try!

  5. I didn't know garlic would come up this early. So exciting to see something going on in the garden, I would imagine :)

  7. Other than my rosemary, which I keep forgetting to bring in, all the plants left on my patio are dead:) I keep thinking I should try planting some garlic--how nice to see something green in winter!

  8. We have had rather mild temperatures so far, even if we had a frost it wasn't long so I've only had to put away a few plants. Nice to see the garlic sprouting, oddly enough I planted cloves in the spring (it was that or throw them out) and I noticed them sprouting the other day!

  9. Grow grow garlic grow :).
    Hope they will produce bigger bulb for next year and stay strong this winter.

  10. I planted mine a couple months ago. .sprinkled them in and didn't give them any more thought. .well, a thought or two. .but no time to follow up on the thought of either watering them or checking them. .I peeked out there yesterday afternoon. .ONE sprout. .but there are sure to be some more. .Jeremy is planting himself some asparagus this week. .maybe I'll train him to take over the veggies :-)!
