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.
