This will be a short post tonight but I just wanted to share a picture of our first Harvest of the spring. A bundle of “firecracker” radishes that I pulled out of the earth just 5 weeks after planting their seeds.
There is something special about the first harvest, no matter how small. The smell, the feel of the soil on my fingers, the pride and gratitude. It’s one of the most rewarding and therapeutic things that I experience each year.
This is one of the many reasons I’m writing this blog. I want this feeling for others. For you, your sister, your neighbor, your children.
You can do this!! You can have this tiny bundle of radishes!! Even in your apartment!!
Now get out there and create/nourish/love/grow something to harvest!!
I took advantage of the little slice of sunshine that we had today and got some garlic bulbs in the ground.
Here is the story on these bulbs. My client has garlic coming out her ears. So she gave me a little bag full and said to just throw them in some dirt (that’s what she did) and wait and we will be plentiful with garlic. This would be awesome since we consume like 20 lbs of garlic…..a month in our house!! Ok maybe not that much but we eat a lot of it. I totally procrastinated on planting garlic in the fall (maybe because I had just given birth?). How dare I not have garlic on the brain enough to plant!!
So I’m excited to try her incredibly in depth method (insert sarcasm) and also have garlic coming out my ears!!
Luckily my garden plan pro app allowed for 21 cloves to be planted in the space I chose and she gave me 20 exactly!!
I will keep you all posted on how they do.
Do you all plant garlic? If so what is your method? What is your yield?
