Garden Party

Saturday was our annual garlic cleaning party! We promise pizza, beer, and garlic tasting in exchange for a few hours of clipping and cleaning of garlic. The annual event has morphed into more food, drinks, and music, sometimes followed by a dip (wanted or not) in our small pool! This year Mother Nature decided we all should have a good drenching as the heavens opened up just as we began cleaning out under the shade of our old oak tree. We scattered to the barn just in time as the wind and rain whipped up into a full fledge storm. Needless to say, we spent the rest of the day cleaning in the cramped quarters of the barn surrounded by garlic on all sides! I think, all in all, a good time was had by all and we managed to clean 165 lbs. of Music, Bogatyr, and German X-tra Hardy.
A great big THANK YOU goes out to Greg & Jann, Kathy, Marci, Alan, and Dana for all their help.

This weeks market selections will include but not limited to garlic, (Music, Bogatyr, German X-tra Hardy, and Georgian Fire), Beets, Chard, Fingerlings, tons of all shades of red and yellow cherry tomatoes, egg plant, Basil, mint, parsley and new this week, Acorn Squash! Can fall be far off? We’ll have to check on our lip-smacking lettuce, as well, to see if anything is ready for market yet. This weekend should be the perfect weather weekend to join us at the Countryside Farmers Market at Howe Meadow in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park from 9-noon. See you at the market!
