Spinach Spaces

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.

Gaping Blank Spaces. How. Did. This. Happen.

I should have just brought my blue cheese dressing outside with me…

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.

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?
