Gargamel’s bringing the lox

Editor’s Note: I realize bagels have nothing to do with gardening, but indulge me on this one. I’ve never seen thematic bagels before.

Fourth of July BagelsYesterday, I stopped in the Bruegger’s Bagels across the street from my office with my boss. They had a fresh batch of Red, White and Blue Bagels out for sale. My boss grimaced.

“I have to get those for breakfast tomorrow,” I said. “They’re absolutely disgusting.”

“It looks like Papa Smurf got a little too close to the bagel mixer,” Steve said, after I sliced them open this morning.

But hey…toasted and with lox and cream cheese? It didn’t matter what color they were.

And while we’re off the subject of gardening, there’s a strange social networking experiment happening over at Linkie Winkie. I’m still learning more about it, but it’s interesting, nonetheless. It’s sort of like figuring out what variety of plant a particular volunteer will be when it grows up.

    Wow- those are colorful. I wonder how they did that. Steve’s comment is perfect.

    They’re totally criminal, aren’t they? I suppose they must have green bagels for St. Patrick’s Day — I’ve probably just missed them — but these struck me as particularly bizarre.
