My sister sent these two photos, documenting apple picking time, from Washington, where she is visiting our brother.
I can count on my brother to ship the most delicious garlic. He grows it in Okanogan, Washington and sends it to me in Pittsburgh. So fresh and aromatic when roasted, sautéed, baked, minced, smashed, rubbed- you name it! Thanks David. ❤️
My brother shipped some of his organic garlic from Okanogan.
It’s my lucky day. So fresh and good.
Primarily Romanian Red Garlic this harvest! And a few other bulbs in the box.
My brother sent organic garlic from his garden in Okanogan, Washington.
It’s the time of year when I’m watching the mail for his shipment to me. He’s made it an annual event.
Thanks David. It’s here. Now to figure out what to cook!
Did you know there are many types of Red Garlics?
Estonian Red, Chesnok Red, Creole Red, Killarney Red, Russian Red, German Red, Vietnamese Red, Korean Red, and Turkish Red to name some.
But this year it’s primarily Romanian Red!
Roasted, rubbed,minced, smashed,chopped, sautéed- it’s all pungently delicious.

Our crazy rental Lincoln Continental. We need a car with room in it for David’s leg which was healing.

Landscape is the weekly photo challenge, “typically displayed in a horizontal orientation” Cheri Lucas Rowlands
You can see I shot this landscape in a vertical orientation as well.
(August 2006 when visiting my brother in Washington)
Screen shots from online storage are not the best resolution. Have to dig out an external hard drive to hunt for 2006 landscapes original files from Washington trip.
and another favorite landscape is a cityscape of Pittsburgh at Night

My sister’s visiting our brother in Okanogan WA and has sent a few pics from her phone. It’s considered “high desert”.
I wish I were with them.
Here are bins of firewood, stacked, ready to burn to keep warm this winter
The other day she sent a pic of these delicious peaches
