  • There are two categories of garlic to consider: Allium sativum, or softneck garlic, and Allium ophioscordon, or hardneck garlic.   
    Softneck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.  
    Through centuries of selection softneck garlic has lost the ability to flower so it doesn’t expend energy on producing seed; instead the energy goes towards developing bigger bulbs underground.

  • For the past month I have been working on stories for my newspaper’s month-long emphasis on breast cancer.
    I’m up to my eyebrows in breast cancer research and have talked with a number of women who are either actively in treatment for this disease or are counting the months and years of being a survivor.
    As it always happens whenever I write about a disease or medical condition, I convince myself that I’m next to get it. When my husband had open-heart surgery, I thought I had heart disease. It took three or four doctors to assure me that I did not.
