Swimming Garlic & Garden Delights

This is the view from my bedroom, the pergola is moving along .. if it would just stop raining for a few days .. we may actually be able to complete it.!

These are the ‘scapes’ the ‘flower’ of the garlic. The are the curly shapes, which you have to cut first .. so that the garlic heads will grow. Wait a few weeks after cutting the scapes, which you can saute like chives or use in a vase as a flower arrangement like I do. And then .. pull the garlic.

This one photo was named by my Brother Lou Luigi who every year plants the garlic for us. (plant on Christopher Columbus weekend in October) .. he arranged the above and named the photo. ‘Swimming Garlic’

Here you have my brother with fists full of ‘garlic’ !

This is the first year I have grown these ‘hot red peppers’ ..

Hope you enjoy my seeing how my garden is growing.!

    Thanks for sharing the pictures with us! I love your yard and the pergola looks great. I bought garlic to plant and never got around to it, guess now I'll wait until Columbus Day.

    Hi Roe!What a beautiful view from your bedroom window. The garden is just beautiful, and the red peppers make me hungry for some spicy Asian food. They're so pretty! At first glance, they looked like artwork on the plate! Thanks for sharing!
