Garlic - it's hanging from the rafters

Little Riley Creek Farm's barn decorated with four varieties of this onion cousin

With large clumps of garlic hanging from its rafters and others lined up on a wooden rack, the barn on the Little Riley Creek Farm is suggestive of an old European farmhouse kitchen decorated with garlic braids. 

Amanda Wischmeyer, who with her husband, Jon Tuttle, owns the farm, said that they grow four different varieties of garlic: French Violet, Italian Lorz, Chesnok Red and a variety that was growing on the farm when they purchased it. 


Drooling over great designs

FROM ADA ICON - One of the Icon's favorite Ada Facebooks is Fine Touch Furniture and Upholstery. Like the song goes, the Garvers seem to put new tunes on old pianos. Only the pianos in this case are chairs and sofas and other furniture. The two top photos represent a before and after. The bottom photos show front and back of one of their recent projects.
