Looking Forward in the Garden

The cloves of garlic I planted in the fall have sprouted.  I counted 44 total – that means 44 whole bulbs this summer!  I plan to give some away and keep some to plant again next year.  I think it would take us a long time to go through that much garlic otherwise.  Next month, I plan to fertilize with seaweed mix and fish emulsion, information about which I found in this article.

I am happy to say also that the succulents I put in the tiny strip of dirt by the front walkway are doing really well.  I was afraid that all the rain we’ve had this winter would rot them, but they have grown a lot and seem to be very happy.

Here is a reminder of what they looked like when I first put them in the ground back in September:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
