The Last Bulb of 2013

When you are young and very inexperienced, your attractions tend to lean towards those with pretty faces and good physiques, such as strawberries and corn. Thinking back now, such flings now seem somehow trivial or superficial. Give me strength and character over looks any day.
 Victoria Renoux, For the Love of Garlic

This is it. Our last bulb of garlic from last year’s garden.


I knew this day would come, but I didn’t anticipate how bummed I would be. The only thing left to do now is get out in the yard and tend the garlic we set in place in November and hope it will grow to be powerful and potent by the time we harvest it in July. (That and head to the winter farmer’s market with fingers crossed that someone there has something tasty to get us through the next 3 months.)
