I started this column in 2004, when garlic was named the herb of the year by the International Herb Association.
I wrote the first column about garlic. It is hard to believe I have been writing for eight years, starting out as a bi-monthly column and progressing into weekly. My how time flies when you are having a good time, and I have certainly had that.
As I write this column, I am enjoying the beauty of the morning. The sun is shining, the temperature is just right with a slight breeze.
Plus, our very own resident fawn is outside my kitchen window enjoying some delicacy from around the wild cherry tree. The hummingbirds are flittering around again, fighting over the homemade food I am now giving them.
