Yes, this counts as the first-ever crop that Little Hat Creek Farm has put into the ground! We saved our largest, most beautiful heads of garlic for next year’s crop. Its tempting to disturb their thick hay mulch blanket to see if they are *actually* growing, but they really wouldn’t like that very much. Alas, we won’t see much action until spring. Luckily, we have other things to distract us, like seeding spinach in the fields, and getting our lettuce and greens ready for the Charlottesville City Holiday Market. We’re babying these sweet little seedlings, covering them on cold nights, and bringing them in to our house on even colder nights. Grow, babies, grow!
