Garlic at the Longmont Market Nov 4th!

After sorting out the last of our garlic, it looks like we have enough to bring to one more market.

We will have Persian Star garlic regular sized bulbs, Chesnok Red extra-large bulbs, some variety bags (5 varieties), some planting garlic with instructions (it's not too late!) and a few other selections.
Come stop by the Longmont market between 8-1 this Saturday.

See you there!

Boulder and Longmont tomorrow

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.

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...

See you at market tomorrow, July 29th!

Our first market with garlic this season!
We will be at Boulder Farmer's Market with 8 kinds of garlic for sale. The crop was great this year and we have lots of the early season garlic- the kind you can eat fresh on crackers, with pesto, hummus and guacamole. We'll  bring some good cooking garlic too! Come by and say hi. Light rain is predicted after noon so don't forget your raingear...
       We'll have German Extra Hardy, Persian Star, Uzbek Turban, Tzan, Shantung Purple, Metro Porcelain, Chesnok Red and Inchelium Red for sale. With a few other kinds in bargain bags and variety bags.

The garlic harvest is finished! Stay tuned for our first market sales day.

It was a bumper crop this year! The garlic had no major problems and looks great! There is a LOT of it!! The harvest started early and was reasonably easy. Now all the garlic is drying in our barns, shops and 2 boxcars. After 3 weeks of "curing" it is full flavored, will store well and is ready to eat and sell. We will be selling Tzan, Persian Star, German Extra Hardy, and "Metro" at our first market which will probably be July 29th in Boulder.
We will sell at the Longmont Market too, on September 16th and 23rd.

Garlic Update- Harvest has begun!

The early "Turban" garlics were harvested 6/15, and now we are starting into the main harvest about a week earlier than usual. Some of the Turbans were small or had only formed "rounds" (no cloves) due to cold-stress in the Spring. But many were decent size.
"Shantung" garlic harvested 6/15



Notice the bottom leaves have fallen off. All in all half the leaves were brown and the stems were starting to fall over on this semi-hardneck type.


Today we harvested the German Extra Hardy with the bottom 4-5 leaves having turned brown (out of 9 leaves total). It looks great!! The Inchelium Red will be harvested next.
