Of course everything in Lady M’s garden is not happy and smiles. Some, on the evil side, are downright scary:


Well, now I’m a little hungry. So I’ll leave you to discuss your own garden finds (good or evil) and your favorite root vegetable recipes. And remember, root vegetables are decorative as well as delicious
