I removed some of the soft new cloves, and you see them here. No papery skin had formed, so they slipped right out.
The stone bowl holds the few normal looking cloves. They are beautiful! And, finally, with the other naked cloves you see a few of the huge stiff neck type cloves. Heads were dying, but bulb completely immature. Oh well! Pasta with garlic and oil tonight!

Last night's dinner was strawberries from the farm down the road, served on an oven puff pancake made from our hens' eggs. So good. The hens are laying like crazy, and the eggs are strong and good. We miss Hilda, but her eggs had been weak for some time.
Meals in May truly are like no other.

I expect to rob some new potatoes from under the plants very soon, and peas are forming on the vines. The first zucchini are just visible. Will they make it before squash vine borers destroy the plant? The garlic plants are HUGE. I wonder how the bulbs look under there?
Spring is in full swing, helped along by two nice rains in the last two weeks. I am very happy about the state of the gardens!
