crystal-powered garlic, originally uploaded by MzMuze.

I planted some garlic bulbs last fall, and used this crystal to mark where I’d put them so I wouldn’t accidentally dig them up come spring.

No fear of that; they were the first thing to sprout in our garden after the snow melted. I have half a dozen, and they are all doing great. But the one that came up immediately next to the crystal is twice as big as all the others.

Coincidence? Probably. But I’m tempted to litter the garden with more quartz just in case.
