The Garlic is Growing

In SE Idaho we should normally still have snow on the ground but not this year.  We have had unseasonably warm weather and the plants are loving it.  Over the past few years we have been working on creating a yard that features edible landscaping. 95% edible is my goal.  People have looked at us like we are a little crazy as each year we remove more and more of our lawn. But it is moments like these that make it all worth it for me. Watching the beauty of edible plants come to life.  Knowing that in some small way we are producing something amazing and delicious for our family.  This week the majority of the garlic that we planted last fall peaked thru the wood chip covering. I love fresh garlic!  It really does taste so much better!  I'll keep you updated on its progress and other things around our little homestead as things spring back to life.  What is growing at your home?
