Those that give up liberty for safety deserve neither.

That area is loaded with it right now. I saw hundreds if not thousands yesterday. I never realized it and always thought they were onions. Now I'm figuring out that the onion chives die off and wither away after about march or april and the garlic pops up. My property has a lot of wild onions on it when there up and search as I might I can't find any right now. I'm harvesting a bunch of the garlic and saving it before it withers away, and saving seed heads later, and I'm going to transplant some of the bulbs to my land. I'm thinking the onions will be up and flowering about the time the garlic is withering. It has a mild flavor, not like grocery store garlic...I can eat this straight out of the ground. Or, it may get stronger as it dries...I'll know more about that later.

Mist... Do yours grow in a curly Q type shape?  That's what they do here, I'm just curious if it's the same.

Some, but not many of them.
