 Last farm stand of the season! 
Tuesday, Nov. 1,   4-6:30pm
First of all, I want to thank everyone who has supported this tiny farm stand through all its changes and limited availability! Thank you.  For this last farm stand of the season- get ready to say good bye to summer for real AND hello to some delicious green tomatoes! fry them, bake them in a pie, put them in a chutney- there are just so many options! I will have recipes available at the farm stand and I will post them on the blog as well.  What else will be available at the farm stand besides green tomatoes? the last of the peppers and squash, carrots, beets, radishes greens- kale, chard, mustard greens, (spicy) arugula, and herbs! come by!

In other news- garlic planting!
Last week, Ben, a great  new volunteer, and I planted garlic-Chesnok Red, Asian Tempest, and Kettle River Giant.  All the garlic planted was from heads we harvested off the farm this year!  It's great not to have that added expense. We separated the individual cloves- using the largest, undamaged ones and planted them right side up- an extremely important thing to do! We planted two 70ft x 2.5ft rows.  We should have plenty for sale next year.

Bed Expansion
That's right! Blue House Greenhouse Farm grows again!  We've dug out three additional rows on the south side of the property and planted a fava bean cover crop.  So far so good- the favas are up and growing and the beds will be available to plant in come late spring!

And more and more....
I'm sure there's more, but I'm just not remembering it now. Happy Halloween!
