A Garlic Festival

 We headed to the highlands to attend a garlic festival.  Interesting low lying clouds.

 We passed some wonderful farms.

 And finally arrived at our destination.

 It cost 5.00 per person to enter.  Most festivals are free.

 I've never seen a floor like this before.  These are 2 X 4's.  Click for a closer look.

 Doesn't look like much of a festival does it?

 Raised beds.

 They had one tent set up with two tables selling garlic.

 No one was tending this table so we couldn't get any info on these garlics.

 Music seed garlic.

 Dining room/gift shop.  It was sort of hard to figure out what was going on at this place.

 I guess eventually there was going to be some sort of demonstrations but there was no information about anything.

 Spinach and garlic dip.....bleeeeeck!  It got tossed fast.  We left.

 At least we found a farmer's market on the way home.  I bought Teddy a chicken which was "free of fecal sludge", thank god!

So, not a good festival day.  You really don't know what to expect until you get there!
