Gardening and Garlic

On this rainy, mild Sunday, I decided to take on the procrastination demons and update my gardening blog, The Messy Gardener.




And here are a few quick glimpses of The Festival That Stinks; one of our favorite Western Massachusetts harvest festivals.  North Quabin knows how to do garlic in style!


If I had $300 worth of spare change, I would have purchased this...




I did afford a few of these and a cup of hot mulled cider.
Where is the garlic, you ask?  My camera ran out juice.  :-(

    1. Aw, thanks Becky. I did check the plants for spider mites and there are none but by now (a week after the photo was taken) the plants are looking leggy and a bit sad. :-(
