Missed my window of opportunity ... AGAIN
Okay, so last fall Deb sent me a generous variety of garlic cloves. Immediately after that, we put our house on the market, so the package went in to the garage. Found it in March, , after we decided the house wasn't going to sell, planted whatever hadn't rotted, and ended up with three nice sized heads of garlic by the fall.
A few weeks ago, the organic farm/nursery nearby had seed garlic on sale, so I bought a few heads, and placed them in the garage while I dealt with all of the pumpkins, carrots, tomatoes, school activities, etc. Kept telling myself I needed to make time to plant, but had too much to do. Today, was nice and sunny, temps above freezing, so I took my bag of garlic, some compost, and my little spade over to the herb bed, and yep, ground was frozen hard as a brick. Grrrrrr ...
A package arrived today from my MIL, who lives in Florida. It contained tulip bulbs, alliums, etc. Should I tell her they're not getting planted?
