Yes, it’s that time of year again! Time to plant garlic! It’s about a two week process around here, and we have to be flexible and work around the occasional snowstorm! Snow tonight may keep us from getting any in the ground tomorrow.
If you feel cold symptoms coming on, try brewing some garlic tea. It’s a “tried and true” method around our place for getting rid of that cold quickly! Bring a small kettle of water to a boil, turn off the heat, and add 4 to 6 smashed garlic cloves. Steep for 20 minutes. Strain into a cup and drink it hot! Chew the cooked cloves when you’re done with the tea for an added bonus!

Temperamental weather – that’s what you experience in Colorado in the spring! We’ve been enjoying rain the last several days and are happy in thinking the snow might be done with us until next winter! Cold nights are still in store for us, most likely, but warm days are supposed to arrive next week! Our farm is a hubbub of activity, and the greenhouse is about bursting with seedlings! We’ve been harvesting lots of lettuce and kale – even some Napa cabbage today, as well as salad turnips, beets, and kohlrabi. We have some potatoes planted, but lots more to go!
The garlic is growing beautifully, and we’re expecting a good harvest – around the beginning of July. Check out our 2013 offerings!
