vegetable garden put to bed

That feels so very good: A last weeding; thick layer of chopped leaves topping off each box; a little screening to hold it in place all nice and snug.

We left the brussels sprout stalks (they’ve provided some convenient forage for the deer, I guess; can you tell?) because we like the way they look this time of year.

The garlic cloves I planted are sprouting; I noticed this while I was spreading the leaves. This is good, I guess. Nice healthy garlic. And now that they’re covered over with a little insulation, they can have a nice winter’s nap.

Why am I anthropomorphizing garlic?

  1. I think the real question is why wouldn't you anthropomorphize garlic.
