Carrots are up, garlic is planted

Last weekend, we planted 16 feet of hard neck garlic in our northernmost row.  I’m looking forward to garlic scapes come spring.

I would estimate that we have 50% germination on our carrots and 0% on rutabagas and parsnips. The Purple Haze and Merida varieties of carrots have done much better than the Baltimore variety.

Today we uncovered the Chinese cabbage to find that bugs have gotten to it despite the row cover! Time to bring out the insecticidal soap.
