Lovely Simona. Mine didn't grow very big cloves but still they have a very powerful aroma.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Ivy. My garlic was also somewhat smaller than last year, possibly because of the drought we are experiencing. But the aroma is there, so I am happy :)

Seeing food stuffs in their natural state is always an eye-opener. I bet few people actually realize that garlic is a kind of root. And I remember the first time I saw artichokes growing... I was shocked to see their were basically a kind of flower. Not sure why, since they rather look like flowers—and anyway, how else would they grow?

Simona Carini

I was also surprised when I saw an artichoke plant for the first time. I agree with you that it is great to experience food in their original state, be it plant, fruit or root. Though I am no gardener, I treasure each chance of harvesting I get.


I'm impressed with your fresh garlic stash! :-)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Paz. It pretty much takes care of itself, fortunately, as I am not that dedicated as a gardner. Harvesting it is quite satisfactory.
