Keeping the Monsters at Bay

It's high Summer here in Tasmania with long days of sunshine, but not too hot on the whole. We have been eating strawberries harvested daily from the garden along with salads of picking leaves, (oak leaf lettuce, rocket, baby beet, spinnach) but best of all we have just pulled up the garlic grown from cloves pushed into the soil deep in Winter. As the bulbs cure I've been stringing them together to make a garlic rope and there is an all pervading aroma of garlic about the house......so no self respecting vampire will be visiting us any time soon!


  1. YUM YUM YUM! I LOVE garlic! How wonderful!!!!

  2. hehehe, No sparkly, hundred year old emo vampire boys for you! XD

    I am envious that it's summer there :)

  3. How lucky you to have such a wonderful garden to grow veggies. Wild rocket is my most favorite salad, must taste very good straight picked.

  4. Happy New Year Linda!!!
