From A to B, the Short Way

Here, some straight lines of vegetables and cover crops in the borough that used to be known for farming, and where the Queens County Farm Museum now preserves that legacy. We stopped in to look around and to buy some of their honey for my oldest friend who recently moved not too far away. We also ended up with a bottle of wine to go with dinner, made partly from the museum's grapes (the rest came from eastern Long Island). My phone camera did not capture the glory well, but still, I'll probably always be a sucker for the beauty of a nice row of vegetables.

We were the same way for a long time too. Forever passing the museum on bike rides out to Port Washington, but we finally stopped in a few years ago for the County Fair because some gardeners at FBGA enter their Blue Ribbon competitions for vegetables. (and they win too!) They do have an entry for garlic, if you're interested next year.
