I was checking the bed this morning, and saw the first little green sprouts of our recently planted garlic. It will grow a bit, then sit there until spring, when it will take off like little rockets!
The parsley I planted because I had left-over seed from 2015 is up and ready to start harvesting. I may not start any parsley in pots in January. If this "throw the seed on the ground and watch it grow" method works, I'll be a happy parsley harvester!

I have tons of garlic blades coming up. I don't even know what to do with them as I want to have that patch for my hellebores, but 2 itinerant bulbs must have travelled there to make life an embarrassment for me!

We just planted our garlic for next season this past Sunday. That reminds me, I have to pick up some straw to cover it for the winter....put some on our strawberries as well....what's left over will go in our outdoor Nativity at Christmas time.

Silent, our low temperatures for winter here is in the mid- to high 20's. I don't mulch the bed.

Alp, garlic should come with luggage handles, it moves around so easily! You could transplant it to a more convenient spot.

Marlin, we have already been down to 22F degrees this fall. I suspect we will see the teens befor too long. I imagine our fall gardens could be much the same but I'm sure your summer days are hotter.

Very! We have already we have already set a record low this fall. My property is the second highest elevation in the county which doesn't help with cold weather.

Alp, it is a great view except all we can see is trees. The only real visible landmark is our towns water tower about 10 miles away. It is beautiful right now with the changing leaves.

The whole World is experiencing unusually cold weather this year: there was a metre of snow in the sahara desert at one point.
Record lows in US, Australia, unseasonal snow in Nov in S.Africa, cold in China and SE Asia. We're very cold here in the UK, and indeed there is cold weather right across Europe, and the Arctic ice cap is growing at 2000sq miles MORE than normal.

I’m in Oregon and we’ve been above average all winter. We’ve been enjoying weather in the 60’s when it should be 40’s and rain. Not only is my garlic coming up, my greens in the hoop house didn’t even pause.

We’re currently sitting at the 2nd lowest for sea ice area globally on record.

I go to a Program Every Friday, I am on Disability because of bad memory issues, and one Saturday a Month we go Fishing. On the way home from the first fishing trip this year, we stopped at local Market and the lead Lady asked if they had any seed Garlic. They gave Us about 20 seed Garlic, whole bunches of it, so we get back to the Day and Stay center - https://www.facebook.com/DayandStay/ and I went and planted it all in Planter box. Well I go there two weeks ago and I see someone has Planted a bunch of tomatoes where a our Garlic is Planted. That OK, because the 50 or seeds I Planted I only saw one plant come up, and they pulled it out!
