A Simple Gardener

This past February, when we were having 80 degree temps and what I thought was going to be an early summer, so I sprinkled some seeds and planted some bulbs in the simple container garden from last summer.  Little did I know that our spring/summer like weather we were experiencing was only to last through the month of February.

I have yet to plant our 'formal' garden for the year.

Yesterday, it poured down rain all day long.

Today I went out to the containers in which I planted the carrot and parsley seeds, onion and garlic bulbs.  I have never planted garlic {the larger bulb on the left} so I'm not sure if this is what it's supposed to look like or not, but I plan on hanging it to dry.
The onions are small, maybe I pulled them too soon or maybe they're the size they are because of the lack of warm weather.  The carrots are great and sweet and there's a ton of them.

Parsley grows like a weed and smells so good.  I cut a small bunch and it now sits in a jar with water on my windowsill, ready to use.

How's your garden growing and what can you tell me about onions and garlic?

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to leave a comment, I love to hear from you!. Have a fantastic day!
