Signs of spring

We have garlic!

We planted approximately thirty (forgot to count them at the time) cloves of garlic in October, and now we've got sprouts. We have 21 so far, but it's early still, and they're heavily mulched, so they're difficult to spot.

The variety is "German Extra-Hardy," the organic strain, from Johnny's Seeds. It did well in our garden last year, while the elephant garlic was unsuited either to us or our climate/soil, and either didn't survive the winter or produced anemic bulbs.
