Garlic and shallot bed walked on during snow

Here in missouri we got a big snow few weeks ago, and boy did my kids love it. Unfortunately for me, they walked over my garlic and shallot bed a few times.

Before the snow I had some green poking through, and as it is melting I can see some bulbs look undisturbed. Has anyone else had this happen with children or deer? Did it affect your harvest? Anything I can do? Thanks!

You just have to wait and see. My garlic rows used to get 4-inch-deep deer prints in them until I started covering them with arches made from wire fencing. The garlic always prevailed.

Kids playing in snow is more important than a perfect row.

There is nothing more beautiful than rosy cheeks on smiling faces. ;)

My kids have walked all over my garlic and its still doing fine.

My neighbor kids seem to always toss a basketball into my main garlic bed and it does fine.

I moved it last fall and they STILL end up needing to climb into it - over the rabbit fence - obviously needing to study more as a pro career does not seem to be in the works...

It deer walking on a garlic bed caused a crop failure, I would never have any garlic. Mine have always prevailed despite those @#%^& critters.
