Another week and another market. It's this time of year that the weekly harvesting, chores, and schedule begins to feel redundant. All around the trees, animals, and forest are beginning to change as fall approaches and the farm does too, but because humans (and farmers) can use technology to circumvent some of the natural cycles, we can stretch the bounty of summer, and with it the harvest, planting, and weeding that goes with it. But for now there is still lots of tomatoes and lettuce and all those flowers.
Plus, there are just a few spots left in the Farm Tour & Field dinner this Saturday evening and it's you're chance to see the remaining summer abundance before the shift to dirt work and construction projects before the relative calm of winter!
The Garlic has finally arrived!
LEFT: Moroccan Creole - This is an heirloom creole variety with plenty of heat and good keeping ability. This is the variety that came with the Moors to Spain and later migrated to the Americas with the Spanish conquistadors. It has beautiful deep purple cloves inside a tight wrapper.
RIGHT: Chesnok Red - This is an heirloom purple stripe variety with a mild flavor and creamy texture. It features easy to peel, long clove that are a beautiful violet. One of the best baking garlics.
