Plaiting Garlic

When our master potter friend Les came to visit for Christmas he brought with him a magnificent plait of fresh garlic. We spent some of the time trying to work out how to plait our own... we're still trying to work it out! You'd be surprised but it's so much harder than hair! Leave us a comment if you know how...

I was just braiding my garlic when I checked in! There is a good video on youtube by Christy of gardennerd.com
Seeing someone doing it really helps. It is easy once you know how. Good luck.
Those raspberries in this weekd box were perfection. We are not having a good berry year here in Scottsdale.

Thanks for the video reference Willo - plaiting garlic is one of those things that's really hard to work out on your own without know-how. Even trying to copy an existing one had us stumped!

Now I don't feel so silly, knowing others can't do it either!
