Worried about the garlic crop ...

planted 170 cloves of garlic this fall but in the no winter winter we are having they are struggling ... they are being heaved out of the ground regularly and keep starting to grow - then a fast freeze hits before I can tuck them all back to bed and they lie on frozen soil exposed

the most snow we've seen this winter - can you the lion in the grass?

what a shame we are trying deep mulching but I can't see having 170 survivors .. maybe half the crop will be ok now if winter sets in properly ever?

much more typical of this winter ...

nobody said farming was easy
