Yesterday I planted Garlic.
I am just not feeling the gardening urge this Winter. Maybe it is too many failures from years past. Or maybe the fact I can never seem to grow much.
But garlic is my one talisman against the darkness.
Garlic never fails me. I have grown it pretty much steadily the last 15 years or so in two climates and three homes. It somehow restores my faith in my ability to grow something. And, it is something that I am sure we will use.
I will patiently wait until I see the sprouts and then hover over them all winter and spring. It serves as a constant reminder that I can do something of worth in this area, even if it as simple as single garlic bulb.
Never Give Up. Never Surrender.
And Always Grow Garlic.
