Finally covering the last plant beds with straw

Will the garlic grow this year?

Finally we made it to cover our plant beds with straw. I had 3 byssi helpers and the job was quickly done. Hopefully the garlic I planted did not take damage of the frost without the protection of mulch. The other plants do not necessarily need the protection against the cold, but I like to cover the ground and keep the moisture in the soil this way. This is mainly in the summertime important, because the sun can really burn although we are not in a Mediterranean climate. We will see what the beds do this year.
