As you may know about me by now, I always have such great intentions about growing a magnificent fall garden that will (naturally) evolve into a productive winter garden which will set us up for an incredibly bountiful spring...

The Garlic is in the Ground

We finally got the garlic in the ground yesterday and I can't tell you how relieved I am because planting garlic is one of those little things that brings me so much comfort and so much joy.

We recently discovered that some of our garlic was starting to sprout, so we decided to try our hand at making our very own Garlic Powder. We pulled three heads of garlic, broke up their cloves and took their skins off. Then we sliced them up and put them in our dehydrator. Since we started this process at night, we…
