This Wednesday we were just about ready to put down the drip lines since the garlic plots had dried out just enough from the March 17-18th snow, when the wind picked up and we decided to wait. Then we got about a foot of heavy wet snow, so it'll be a while now.

This is a little section of garlic in the (foreground) looking very scenic in the earlier snow. With the more recent (3/23) snow it is totally covered up. This will be good for the garlic in the long run, but will make laying down the drip lines trickier.
The garlic is looking exceptionally good due to the favorable winter (good snow cover, good moisture, cold temps, not too much wind). We will cross our fingers for no natural disasters (like the hail and flooding we had at our farm last June.)
