Is It Winter Yet?

Posted 2/3/2012 7:37am by Cheryl Ferguson.

Italian Garlic

Punxsutawney Phil, the prognosticating groundhog, said yesterday that we will have 6 more weeks of winter.  6 more weeks?  That feels like Alice and the March Hare - - we’ve had nothing yet, so how can we have more?  The warm days have been nice for working outside and napping in the sun (we wish!), but we’re afraid our raspberries and garlic miss the winter.  Most of them need a good long cold spell to get charged up for the coming season.  On the other hand, the Italian garlic we planted in the Test Bed seems to be loving our Mediterranean winter.  So as always, we don’t know what’s in store and we continue to plant and tend with the perennial hope and trust of farmers.
