Gardeners' Corner with Liz

Staff Book Review with Liz

What would your last meal on this earth be?Set in 1950’s Louisiana, this story follows Ginny Polk, daughter of a murdered prison warden, who grows up to become the penitentiary’s cook.  Her specialty, providing last meals to death row inmates.  This story is as timely as ever, uncovering universal truths, not only of the incessant racial bias in our prison system, but of the personal prisons we build for ourselves.  Grappling with the age old adage, “The Truth Shall Set You Free”, Ginny Polk’s personal journey to freedom is both inspirational and thought provoking.Join us, Nine Perfect Strangers Book Club on Tuesday, September 22 at 10 am if you’d like to discuss

TONIGHT'S DINNER

Staff Book Review with Liz

Big Summer by Jennifer WeinerWhen Daphne Berg’s drama on the dance floor goes viral, her up and coming status as an overweight influencer will never be the same. Re-connection with an old high school friend now foe, leads her right into the middle of a tragedy that causes her to reevaluate all that she knows about the meaning of friendship, forgiveness, and the age old adage that everything is not always as it seems. A light and entertaining book that gave me an insightful window into the young, millennial world of social media and living out loud. I highly recommend!

It's Harvest Time

For those who planted garlic last fall it may be time to harvest!
Garlic is ready to harvest when the bottom two or three leaves have turned yellow.  Harvest the garlic by prying up the entire plant with a garden fork or shovel and gently removing most of the soil clinging to the bulb.  Cure the plants in full sun for about 2 weeks on a screen.  (Cover with a tarp at night and when it rains.)  When the leaves, stems and roots are thoroughly dry trim the roots, cut the stems to about 1 inch long and store in a mesh bag in a cool, dry place.
