Early May garden check: volunteer dill and cilantro, rhubarb (of course), chives, and the early spinach, lettuce, mixed greens and beets are all up! Peas poking through. And then there’s garlic. As always, there’s some volunteer garlic from last year–which we cut and eat until this year’s garlic is harvested in late July or early August. Garlic in May is so green. Two rows of perfectly bright narrow green leaves making the garden look, well, like a garden already. Remember, the trick with garlic is to plant it in October. Harvest mid-summer.

Rhubarb and garlic, early May
