Such light and contrast--you have outdone yourself on this one...
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Larry. Thank you.

Enough garlic to keep the vampires under control!
Ginnie Hart: Enough garlic to last throughout the winter. smile Thanks, Ray.
Quite a strange site to see plant roots dangling in mode-air. They almost look like stalagmites. Nice BW.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Michael. Stalagmites of the garden variety. smile Thanks.

Fabulous picture of the garlic. That would be enough for a few meals I guess and keep the bugs away grin.
Great play of dark and light.
Ginnie Hart: Enough for the winter, I'm sure, if they use it like we do. It was a wonderful sight in Don's work room, wasn't it! Bedankt, MLMA.
This is another one of your amazing images Ginnie. Perfect choice I think to use B&W. It must smell wonderful in there!
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Elizabeth. Funny thing is I don't recall any smell. Either I wasn't paying attention to that sense or you can't smell garlic all wrapped up like that? Now you've got me wondering!

A very fine bit o' danglage Ginnie. I love garlic: and it does you good too!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. I always warn Astrid when I've put a whole head of garlic in a recipe...for her co-workers the next day. HA! grin
A fantastic idea, the interesting photograph. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Zielona. Dziękujemy.

Your sister grows michigans on her farm Ginnie? Wow.
Ginnie Hart: I don't know about Michigans, Chad, but she definitely grows garlic! Gotta love it, right? smile Thanks.

The onions look overdried - the farm of your sister must be a little paradise!
Ginnie Hart: It's garlic, Philine, and I have a feeling they know exactly what they're doing, based on how they eat! smile A little paradise, indeed.

Nope.. still Sunday here smile I've got a garlic shot taken a farmers' market on Saturday for posting at some point. Your garlic is nothing like mine, though smile
Ginnie Hart: Garlic in the raw and at its most primitive, Alan, I'm sure. smile I'll be most interested to see yours one of these days!

Just waiting to enhance you sister's suppers, Ginnie. Looks as if this was taken in a dark barn yet with all the garlicky details showing well
Ginnie Hart: My sister and BIL LOVE cooking and get all their veggies from their own garden. They even have concord grapes! smile This garlic was strung up in a little corner room of the barn that BIL uses as his work room. One window there lets in wonderful light. You would be in heaven there!

aaaaah lovely, i just bought 3 beautiful big cloves of garlic today, so pretty... but i don't think i could make them look this good in a photo smile
Ginnie Hart: I buy a little mesh bag of usually 6-8 heads of garlic here in the Netherlands, Elaine. I can just imagine what it'd be like to grab one of these heads from the barn! smile
Well that will keep the Vampire's at bay.

I read Ray's V&V and thought it very good
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Bill, on both counts. Ray did us all proud!

Nice lighting on this garlic. At least there is no threat of vampires here!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Helen. Not a vampire to be seen! smile

Onions and Garlic always seem evocative, got onions drying in the greenhousesmile Nice shot
Ginnie Hart: You'll have to show us your onions in the greenhouse, John! Thanks.

Nearly an identical picture if I was to take one of the onions hanging up in our shed Ginnie, another out of the ordinary capture I would never think of taking.
Ginnie Hart: Onions and garlic seem to be hanging up all over the place right now, Peter. I hope you'll now show us your onions! smile
just enough garlic to boost up the cooking of the roast chicken ...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Richard! Thanks.
ça va faire fuir tous les mauvais esprits
Ginnie Hart: Or so they say! smile Merci, l'Angevine.
Very nice picture and light!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Victoria.
Very nice lighting and choice of B&W Ginnie! smile
I love garlic and it's great for keeping the insects from biting, when I fish grin
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin, and THAT'S a good use for it, for sure! smile
interesting and different smile
Ginnie Hart: I hope that means a thank you, Joshi? grin
great shot Ginnie! I can imagine the smell..
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ioana. Funny this is I don't remember a smell at all! smile
Used to look like my barn Now I let it stay in the ground and use the scapes in flower arrangements.
Ginnie Hart: Wait, Mary. Are you saying you don't salvage them for cooking??? But then, flower arrangements might work! smile
A very fine shot Ginnie, just think of all the curries that lot will help flavour. I thought Ray's V.& V.was so very interesting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. And yes, Ray hit it out of the park!
The lighting is outstanding in this B&W, Ginnie. How wonderful it would be to just go into the barn for your supply of garlic.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly, and isn't that the truth! My sister and BIL eat well off the produce of their land!
Ahhh...the beauty of the farm! Great b&w!
Ginnie Hart: You know all about it, Robin! smile Thanks.
Nice! Enough for the winter. Garlic always has a summery flavour about it.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Wim. Enough to last quite awhile! smile Bedankt.
A fine combination of light and form here Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fred.
beware, beware...
I guess no Count Dracula in Michigan ? ;-)
Ginnie Hart: HA! Or so I've heard! smile Thanks, Flo.
Fabulous capture Ginnie. I can smell it from here!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I LOVE the smell of garlic! smile

It looks very pretty with the light catching it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry!
You have captured the light perfectly Ginnie... i can almost smell the fresh garlic through my screen...
i checked our Ray's V&V... he did goodgrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I love the smell and taste of garlic! Where would food be without it. grin And yes, that Ray did us all proud, didn't he!

Garlic... to ward off vampires
Ginnie Hart: Or so they say, Oscar! smile
Brilliant presentation here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
amazing image Ginnie, as you know, and as Ray indicates, you'll be well protected for the winter...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Juan Carolos. I wish I had my own barn full of garlic like this. grin
Super shot. We just finished planting next year's crop.
Ginnie Hart: Aha! Planning ahead is always good, Michael. smile Thanks.

I haven't been that successful with my garlic... but your photo is great and the b&w suits it enormously.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Petra, for stopping by and commenting here. It's been nice to meet you!
