Holy Garlic Batman!

I happened to glance in the direction of the garlic bed today and saw a flash of green!  So I went over to inspect and was surprised to see this....

Someone gifted me with this particular variety of garlic and it's known for being super early. I'll say! It is the only variety out of the ground right now. Someone else told me that this while early, this variety is very fragile, so I will have to make sure to mulch it with straw tomorrow....Imagine...garlic in February!
