Martha Foley, our news director, has been expanding her commitment to gardening over the past few years. If you follow her conversations with Cooperative Extension Horticulturalist Amy Ivy each Monday morning you know Martha is building out her garden and spending more time in the dirt.
She’s submitted photos to All In this summer as part of our garden-tracking project. Earlier this week, she shared these photos with me.
I have a question for other gardeners and a request.
The question: did you notice garlic (and onions, for that matter) maturing a bit early this year and coming in smaller than usual? Is it too much rain and not enough sun? Or is it just my garlic and onions?
The request: keep those garden photos coming. We’re posting an assortment of these photos once or twice a week. Let’s see yours! Send photos to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nothing makes me happier than a day in the dirt.
And here’s another one from Martha about which she said, “This is what counts in my garden.”
