There is really no interesting news on the garden front this week. Everything is still barely coming up, and the ground looks like a dried up river bed.
First up award goes to the garlic!
I did this in the garden - sprained my ankle something awful! Fell in a groundhog hole on my way to the water spigot. Thought I was falling into a well for a minute! Got ice on it right away and it's slowly getting better, but I can't drive my stick now :(

All I've got is some random observations this week:
Really? 8 bucks a jar for "heirloom" tomato sauce? Apparently the rest of us growers and canners need a class in marketing. ASAP.
The aftermath of cherry blossom festival time and crabapple season mania…. cherry tree vomit all over town. Stuck to every car and plastered all over the siding on homes, and dogs tracking in petals all over the floor.
Monster Old Bay: because, Maryland. We bathe in it and fill up our fuel tanks with it here.
I'll be back at it tomorrow, I'm going to have a talk with that groundhog. Have a great weekend y'all!
