I have really enjoyed working with the garlic over the last several weeks, watching the transition from spring garlic to bulbs of garlic cloves.  This metamorphosis is not anything I have ever really paid attention to, and it just made me feel a bit more connected to nature and of course the food we eat.  This week you are receiving an extra amount of garlic to take advantage of the bounty of the season.  Now is the time you would want to string it up and hang it somewhere in your kitchen, out of direct  sunlight, and allow it to dry.  Collect this season’s garlic and enjoy it throughout the year.  I just recently finished off the garlic I saved from last year and I can tell you, it makes me really happy to have our own garlic and to be able to walk past it in the market!
