day 3052: preparing seed garlic for a slightly smaller, small mountain of garlic.

regular readers might recall we’ve been planting and harvesting a small mountain of garlic for several years now. we usually plant around 200 cloves around this time of year in our lovely cropp crop. it turns out that 200 head of garlic is, well, way too much for a family of three even after you […]

on waking, once again, to a bat in the house!

there’s nothing quite like waking up to the swoosh! swoosh! of a bat flying around your bedroom and not too far from your head! it’s been 6 years since we’ve had any bats in the living space of our home ( i have to qualify that statement because there are plenty of bats we can […]

sowing the seeds of a garlic harvest.

somewhat reasonably assured the galaxie 500 will not be stolen by vampires.

well, at least not for the next few weeks while the garlic harvest dries.

wherein we harvest a small mountain of garlic.

finally garlic harvest day arrived for our first crop of garlic at our organic valley employee garden! 250 head of garlic makes for a nice sized crop. even after factoring what we’ll use for seed for next years crop and our own personal consumption, we should some left over to pawn off to unsuspecting victims.

garlic scape asparagus cream soup

i’ve received lots of requests for the garlic scape asparagus cream soup i mentioned in the social intertubes the other day. well, here’s the almost embarrassingly simple, yet supremely delicious recipe. wash a half dozen or asparagus stalks and throw them in a boiling pot of water. toss in some of the usual herb suspects, […]

garlic scapes, how do i love thee? let me count two ways.
