PNW: Things are actually growing and not rotten after all!

Post  gwennifer on 3/31/2012, 10:39 pm

My garlic is sprouting! My garlic is sprouting! And all nine onion sets are growing now! I thought for sure by now that the garlic had just rotted (and half the onions that hadn't come up when the first half did). Today was the day I was going to dig down in the garlic square and see what I found). Well what do you know? I didn't have to! Because I found garlic sprouts!

YAY!!!
My shallots have finally started to sprout, so I think I know how you must feel. I can not BELIEVE the amount of rain that's fallen in the past few days... I'm surprised everything isn't rotting.

Thanks everyone! Still hit and miss with the spinach and peas. Hope to get those squares filled out and producing before hot weather comes.

Rooster, you do know you're welcome to come out West and harvest all the rain you can carry back with you. Wink

Unfortunately, here on the Southern Oregon Coast, we had 21 inches of rain during the month of March. The inland valleys had only 6 to 8 inches, but that was a lot for them in March.

My peas never made it. They came up out of the MM back in early March and I pushed them back down, but the seeds never really germinated. So, now that we have a few days to expect just some showers, I will replant.
