The slightly warmer weather in the past four week convinced the garlic (planted in the fall) that it was time to make its way up above its straw covering. By last week, when the new weather hit, it was about 5 inches above the straw. The cold or something drove local deer to make their way through our yard to see whether we had any greens to offer. And we did! Garlic tops now all gone. But, the deer seem to have overlooked the tulip leaves. And I'm told they never mess with daffodils, but if things don't warm up soon and provide them with some grass, they may be forced into daffodils, too.
