Garlic with ancestry

Today continues the trend of the last few days. Blue skies, a slight breeze and temperatures in the high 30s. That's around the 100°F mark. Thank God for the cooling waters of the old lavatoio, where I can lie up to my neck in fresh water straight off the mountain when things get too hot for comfort.

M. is very proud of his garlic harvest this year. He tells me he had the seed cloves from a German who had his from a German, who had his from a Russian. I just like the way they taste, and the way the flowers look:




Homegrown garlic flowers.
