Garlic Cloves and BulbsI planted our 2nd season of Garlic today, 3 varieties: German Extra Hardy, Russian Red (both heirloom) and Music - a variety new to us, hardy and vigorous, and much larger than the other two. I've been trying to hone my Square Food Gardening skills, and I was pleased with the results in my garlic planting today. I fit 120 garlic cloves in the same amount of space that I fit about 44 cloves last fall, 3-4 inches apart in rows approximately 7-8 inches apart about 32 square feet. I referred to last year's Garden Blog on Garlic to get started.

Hightunnel, Compost Sept 2010The change of seasons is here once again and with it comes tidying, preparing, sowing and readying ourselves for the cooler weather, the slowing down of life and with that, the enjoyment of the earth's bounty. We are working to be able to eat fresh food from the high tunnel the whole year through, even in the dead of winter when we are snowbrooming the hightunnel roof. We didn't can this year, but we're dehydrating vegetables and herbs, and sowing for fall and winter harvests. Since July, I've been thinking about food and nourishment for the dark months ahead. I want a fresh salad from the garden in January and ingredients for soup in December and maybe, just maybe, parsnips for Thanksgiving!

Heirloom TomatoesHappy Summer, from your local backyard gardeners! We're knee deep in basil, tomatoes and 30 varieties of flowers... to name a few of the items growing in the high tunnel. Here in the yellow berry baskets are 4 of 5 varieties of heirloom tomatoes we're growing this year. Check out the Market Stand for all items available currently. I've been better about updating that than I have been about garden blogging.
