This grasshopper needs a master

I stopped by to say hello to my sister tonight. Her landlord, and urban homesteader, Jim was working in his amazing garden. I often look out my sisters window and admire Jim's garlic. I asked Jim if after harvesting he would give me a plant to break up and start my own garlic patch. He said yes. Jim is a very giving guy and great sharer of knowledge. He doesn't seem to mind all my questions, so I hope to have some good gardening conversations with him. I must say, as well, he has the most beautiful compost I've ever seen. Compost is an art that I have never mastered. I think this 'grasshopper' needs to watch the master and learn.
