Time To Plant Garlic, Photo Credit Reed Petersen
Mid-October is the perfect time to plant Garlic in Southern Minnesota. In addition to great eating many of our customers use our garlic to plant for to their own gardens. Garlic is is a close cousin to many of the bulbing flowers like tulips and crocuses and is planted in the fall like those flowers are. The varieties we plant, over winter great here.

Here is is a link to another article on our website for how to pick and plant seed garlic. How to pick seed garlic and plant.

 Don't forget the pumpkin pie, here is a link to 15 different recipes  we have developed for pumpkin pie. From classic to low carb, these are great creative ways to work a little pumpkin into your life

Fall greens are so amazing: wild arugula, baby spinach, lettuce, baby beet greens, baby kale, red russian kale, cilantro. All are at the perfect baby baby size. 

Hot, hot, hot...Reed picked a bushel of habernaro and poblano peppers this week. If you are looking for a nice fall recipe to use some of those poblano peppers is is one. Brian's corn bread and Poblano recipe.
