The garlic are starting to send their spikes up towards the sky. I discovered these on some elephant garlic while checking on the garlic beds this afternoon. From now through June and possibly into early July, I’ll have a steady supply of these tasty spikes. Garlic spikes and asparagus, lightly sautéed in olive oil make a wonderful dish, especially if they’ve just been picked out of the garden.
In the garden, the first rows of lettuce are spreading their baby leaves, and the shallots have all their fingers out of the ground. Boredom doesn’t exist in a vegetable garden. Every day, there is something new to see.
