NEWSFLASH: Reports of an alien invasion are pouring in today from northern Indiana.
Residents there woke up to find their fields and gardens sprouting millions of aggressive and fast-growing space plants, possibly seeded overnight during a meteor shower. The plants are visibly growing and are multiplying out of control.

Nah. It's just wild garlic. It only looks like something out of science fiction.
The bulblet head here is only about three quarters of an inch across, but it's fully packed with baby garlics that will hit the ground running. Well anyway, they would have if I hadn't pulled it up.
I love the energy of the new growth here, coiling like springs and bursting through the papery skin. I regretted having to kill it, but there are plenty more where this one came from.
One of these days, I swear, I am going to make a weed garden.
