IMG_2376This week we welcome the first harvest of spring broccoli and cauliflower as well as the first garlic of the year! This is fresh garlic so it does not have the papery skins you are used to. When you cut the clove you can see the beginnings of this protective outer coat starting to form. Use fresh garlic just as you would cured garlic.

My sister and her family are in town for a week long visit. They’ll get to experience an organic farm’s garlic harvest as a major task of the week is harvesting the rest of the crop and setting it up to cure. They have already experienced a squash harvest. The adults picked the squash and the kids ran it back to the harvest crates. It was the fastest squash harvest ever and the kids had fun in the mud!IMG_2379IMG_2378
