Garlic planting in December? Water!!! And photographs from WeeBee Farms at Harlequin's market

First of all - we have had a very warm dry month and in spite of the skiff of snow yesterday the soil is very dry, so if you can, give your garlic a good soaking! We soaked our main field last week. Yesterday I planted one last little section of garlic with some of the smaller cloves left over from the main planting. Normally Dec 1st is the "deadline" but not this year.
Also I have made some interesting things with photos from the farm that are for sale at Harlequin's Gardens Holiday Gift Market.
Come by and see!
I have trivets with photos, notecards, mini-journals and bookmarks on display. Look in the back "bee area" for the notecards and journals. Harlequin's has a BEAUTIFUL selection of gifts!!!! They are open til the 24th....

Thanksgiving Day was garlic planting day at WeeBee Farms. Winter Market next Saturday!

Plant garlic, make pie, plant garlic, eat Thanksgiving dinner. That's how the day was here! Gratitude for garlic, good weather, good food and good friends and family!
It's not unusual for us to plant a little garlic on Thanksgiving, usually it's the last day of planting. This year our main garlic field was too wet in early November to till and plant because of our last 2 snows. Luckily with the warm weather it looks like we'll be done by the "deadline" of December 1st.
Winter Market
I've been busy making photo prints and doing work for the Winter Market for WeeBee Farms Art & Photography. Come visit Dec 2nd and 3rd! I will have lots of gift ideas and maybe even a little garlic! Stay tuned...

We'll be at both Boulder and Longmont Farmer's Markets so stop by either location. This will probably be the last chance to buy garlic at the Longmont market. At Boulder we will likely be bringing garlic until the end of October.

Longmont Market photo and Westword publicity

Garlic at Longmont Farmers Market. by Linnea Covington
Longmont market was a success last Saturday, and we will be there again this Saturday. Westword writer Linnea Covington was there buying food and took this photo of our display. Here is a link to her piece

It was nice and cool at the Boulder market and although crowds were thin at the market in general it was very busy at our stand with so many people suddenly in the mood to cook! Bring your umbrella for this coming Saturday and enjoy the change of weather...
