Tomatoes and Garlic for Black & White Wednesday

posted in: Roundups and Events, Uncategorized | 4
I keep a little basket of garlic on my kitchen window sill. When I buy tomatoes or avocados, I put those in the basket, too. I glanced at the basket recently and thought it was cute enough to snap a quick picture for Black and White Wednesday. This is the culinary photography event started by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and now overseen by Cinzia of Cindystar. This week Simona of Bricioli is hosting.
By the way, if you ever see tiny bugs on your garlic, try keeping a few dried peppers or a piece of fresh ginger in the basket with them. The ginger will dry out pretty quickly but continue to work to repel the bugs for quite a few weeks. The peppers will work, and be worthy of cooking with, for months. (There are some dried peppers in the basket in the photo, you just can’t see them.)

  1. Thanks for the tip about keeping the bugs away, Claire. That’s a lovely composition of two essential ingredients. Thank you so much for contributing to BWW!

  2. A simply beautiful still life, Claire.

    And thanks for the tip on ginger. Now, if there was a cure for flour pests short of storing all starches in freezer, I could die a happy woman. 😀
