Kimberly – The Garlic Lady. Many of you who know me know this story. But for those of you who do not – I want to share my story with you.
I am a Farm girl at heart with a love for horses and the outdoors. My dad always had a love for animals and things that grew. A few years ago he started to grow garlic and I helped him. It became ‘our thing’. I’m sad to say that 3 years ago I lost my dad to Cancer. I still grow the garlic every year as a way of staying close to him. I grow the garlic at our family farm in Arden. It is some of the best garlic anywhere because it is grown on ‘fresh air and sunshine’. Many other people who now grow “Bill’s Garlic” will tell you it is the best! I am always happy to share pictures and stories about ‘Papa Bill’ , our farm and my Tennessee Walking Horses with you all. I know that garlic is not the same as growing flowers – but to me it is beautifull, tough, and strong. Just like my dad. Just like me smile emoticon Here is a picture of me bringing in the garlic last year.
I want to thank all the people who purchased Garlic from me again this year. Once again I am sold out – and I thank you.
Take a minute over the next few days to be Greatfull for all we have in our lives. Think about the people who are no longer with us. Enjoy the Garlic!
PS – when I’m not growing garlic or playing outside I’m a Financial Advisor at the Co Operators Insurance here in Ottawa.
