This Week’s Harvest
- Fennel OR Head Lettuce
- Salad Mix
- Purple Kohlrabi
- Fresh Garlic
- Parsley OR Basil
Garlic is back! Those of you who were members last year know that we didn’t have garlic. That was because of a poor crop in 2019, in which we had enough to dole out in shares throughout the season but didn’t have enough to keep for seed stock. That meant we were going to have to buy certified organic garlic seed from elsewhere and it is a bit of investment. Once made, you should be able to save your own seed from year to year, to help recover the initial cost. We decided to hold off a year before reinvesting in new garlic stock. It was a rough year! But last fall we did buy 150 lbs garlic seed, planted it, covered it with row cover all winter, weeded it in the spring, and just this past week harvested it! Last night I added 4 cloves of garlic to our dinner because I could. We are swimming in garlic now and it feels (and tastes) so good! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
