My Week In Pictures

Some of the week’s highlights.

1. Spring-planted shallots are just about ready. How do I know? The greens have started to dry up and fall over. Every year, I get enough shallots to last through fall, winter, and spring cooking while saving enough bulbs to replant.

5. Goldfinches and safflowers. I stalked and stalked and stalked to get these pictures. They’re most definitely anti-paparazzi birds!
