    On the milk run to the store late this afternoon I saw one teeny wild garlic leaf just nosing up through the soil. Less than an inch high. If I had not been looking I'd have missed it.
    Spent a few minutes looking for more but it realy was the only one there.
    I've monitored this patch of garlic for the last ten years and this is the first time I've seen the first leaf to arrive. Just as we are getting the first real frosts and seriously cold nights.
    Last night was the first time we have been below freezing all winter -3. Tonight it could go to -6 so I covered that precious baby leaf with a few handfull of leaf litter to try and add a bit of protection from the frost. I've also put out extra fat balls and peanuts for my feathered friends breakfast in the morning.

    I gave to get up for the chickens (we breed rare breed utility birds now). Its no great hardship to ensure wild birds are fed and gave water too.

    Yes if I put water out tonight it will freeze and be pointless, so I will put some tepid water out in the morning.
