Spring garlic:
Spring garlic is like the soft-shell crab stage of garlic.  The papery layers haven’t matured and cured yet into their customary dryness.  To enjoy this delicacy, just peel off the outer leathery layers and then chop up the entire head – no need for any more peeling!
Keep this garlic refrigerated, and use it up quick.  It is not for storing, it is for using!

Herb bouquet:
What to do with this?  That is the question I ask myself each time I go in or out my front door, passing my overflowing herb garden!
The best thing to do with it is drop it down into a small juice glass with water, and put it in your refrigerator.  Each time you open the door, the beautiful scent and appearance of the herbs will cheer and refresh you!
Pick them out of the bunch and use them as you like, when they wither, put them in the compost pile.
Contents: parsley, rosemary, chives, sage, lavender blossom, lemon balm, dill
