I don’t know why I have energy today, but I decided to take advantage of it. I went grocery shopping in normal clothing (ie not pajamas), cleaned the bathroom, made granola, wrote a bazillion letters to random people I miss (this could be you), opened the windows, and GARDENED. Yeah, hard to believe.
After harvesting some little green things, I went to work filling in some of the spinach spaces with…wait for it… more spinach. I planted around 30 more seeds in the blank spaces and managed a small bag of salad supplies for the suppertime.
After the harvest, I unlocked our batman shed and found the shovel. Garlic time.
Tips on How to Plant A Garlic
- My green thumb of a mother told me– DO NOT PLANT GARLIC CLOVES FROM THE GROCERY STORE. Obviously I didn’t listen because I am still young and deaf. SO, we shall see if anything breaks from the soil in April.
- Plant three inches deep, about six inches apart.
- Make sure you plant the flat side of the clove downward. I know this is confusing, because duh there are several flat parts of a garlic, but just look here. These people also said soak garlic in seaweed, so everything I just told you could be wrong. (WHO has seaweed right now? WHO?)
- Water Water Water all Winter
I also planted a little pot of basil to hang out in the laundry room, but that is neither here nor there.
Art Crawl tonight! Woop-woop!
What is your favorite thing to do or accomplish when you have an unexplained burst of energy?
For me, it’s making a To-Do list and actually doing it!
Has anyone tried soaking garlic in seaweed before planting it?
