Jimmy, Jimmy, how does your garlic grow?

How does my garlic grow?

Well, in any normal February it doesn’t grow at all. It should be stunted into dormancy by frozen ground and a thick layer of snow.

But not in 2012, the Year We Skipped Winter. My garlic cloves have already sent up 5 inches of first leaves. I hope they live through a spring that could have 8 weeks of overnight frosts.
