garlic plants poking up early and snow later

On the brink of zone 5 and 6 in NY, my garlic poked up early in the month when it was unusually warm. Since then, nothing but snow and 18 degree nights. Wondering if I have something to worry about. The tops of the plants have not grown larger, but do not show signs of damage so far.

RE: garlic plants poking up early and snow later

You don't need to do anything. Actually snow is a kind of blanket keeping your garlics warmer. even witout snow at 18F they could do fine.
