The fall weather this year has not be cooperating - I can't recall an end to the season quite as cold as this one with zero warm ups. In fact, this morning, we woke up to a bunch of white stuff on the ground - this is the earliest snowfall we've had in a very long time.
It's late in the season - some may say the season is already over - but several tasks were still on the to do list. The most pressing of these was getting the garlic in the ground. I was waiting and waiting and waiting for that elusive "nice" day to get this task done - but I finally realized that it was not going to arrive.
On Sunday, it was just above freezing BUT it wasn't windy and the sun was out. From the looks of the long-range forecast, this was as good as it was going to get so I decided to get out there and plant the garlic. I had to do it in stages...prep the bed, come inside for a warming break, plant a couple of rows, come back in - you get the picture.
Had to get out the heavy duty, insulated gardening gloves
