I believe that is the Music garlic. I’d have to check my tags outside to be sure, but I think that’s what it is. I can’t wait to dig it up in July, but I’ll hate to see i die back when it looks so beautiful right now.
Actually, I’ve been using the picture for years as an avatar on various message boards without knowing who she was. I have no idea where I found the picture….I assume someone else was using it before me and I swiped it for my own. I think the picture (not the woman) conveys the persona of being innocent with a little bit of punk mixed in. It really has nothing to do with the nun herself.
Oh no, Rachel! Well, what I keep reminding everyone is that even though things are looking good right now, I haven’t eaten a single thing out of my garden yet! A lot can happen! I know, the eternal optimist. :)
When I see a tiny head on one of the broccoli plants I will consider myself a smashing success for my first year of serious gardening. Even if the plant dies at that point I will pull that tiny little head, steam it and eat it!
