What smell bothers you?

MY YARD, MY KITCHEN, MY HANDS--they all STINK, it's garlic. I love garlic but harvest time is STINKY!

Any smells start to bother you after a while?

I've been making strawberry jam--the house smells like strawberries--intensified.

Strong soap or bleach smells bother me. I was in Wally World recently and went down the cleaning/soap aisle. There were a couple of teenage girls at one end who had apparently been spraying air freshener down the aisle to decide which one they liked. The odor was so strong, I immediately got a headache and had to leave. Just can't deal with that.

I love the aroma of garlic, though I used to make garlic butter in the microwave and the smell would permeate the kitchen - I loved that. Need to start doing it that way again.

We are done blanching the scapes and we have at least 2 maybe 3 more days of harvesting garlic, I love it, just not for days on end! I reek! I think I ate too many garlic bulbuls, it's now in my blood. I hope I don't get sick, doctors wouldn't like my stink.

Strawberries are so seasonal, it's tough for me to not like that smell. I made strawberry smoothies with bananas and plum today and some strawberry sauce for Trapper's good for him ice cream. HA, good for him.
