I liked the photo of your garlic. My sister just gave me some garlic stipes from her farmshare; so far I’ve just chopped part of them into some chicken salad. I’ll probably fry the rest into something-or-other.
The other day I collected some fallen beechnuts from my Mom’s yard, in hopes of seeing what they taste like. My first attempt didn’t work out so well as far as extricating the nutmeat, but dang, those things sure *smell* nice!
