SoupAddict’s Spring Gardens Come to Life
Georgia Crystal is in the foreground; German Porcelain in the background. These hard neck garlics will be ready in August, but they’ll send out scrumptious scapes in early June. (Scapes are garlics’ curly, long flower stalks that must be removed in order to divert the energy required to produce a bloom back to the bulb. But don’t discard: they have a lovely, delicate garlic flavor and can be sautéed like green onions. They’re prized purchases at farmers’ market, if you’re lucky enough to get there early.)
SoupAddict turned this lush and loamy bed over on Friday night and found it loaded with earthworms. SoupAddict loves da wormies because that means that all the work she has done on her soil over the years has paid off. Happy wormies means happy soil, which will mean happy plants.
Sugar snap peas and Pink Beauty radishes were sown on Saturday.
The Spring planting season has begun!
