Tamales! Opening Bell: Coffee, Ghost Peppers, Pork, Eggs!

Good afternoon!

October is Garlic planting month at Cedar Rock Ridge. Growing the world’s finest Garlic takes over 200 days and lots of care and attention. Lots of nitrogen, but not too much. Lots of moisture, but evenly spaced throughout the season. It needs a good cold spell to divide into cloves. But everything is worthwhile when you taste the delicious flavor from fresh, organic Garlic. Coming in June 2019!

Check out the new items from Bradford Valley Farm: Pork Sausage and Pork Bratwurst!

Being harvested now: Naga Bhut Jalokia Ghost Peppers! These beautiful pods are extremely hot, about 250 times hotter than a jalapeño. Checking in at just over 1 million Scoville units of heat, the ghost Pepper is an excellent base for homemade hot sauce. This Pepper demands respect. Be careful!

Now is the perfect time to plant perennial flowers that will bloom starting in the spring. We have plenty of old-fashioned Hellebores, Shamrock, Red, Yellow, Purple, and Cream Coneflowers, beautiful magenta-flowered rose Campion, white Bee Balm and others. Search PLANT to see everything that’s available now.

This Friday, Doña Estela and her amazing homemade Tamales! She will make them Friday morning and have them at market Friday afternoon. They will be 5 for $7 in 3 flavors: Pork, Chicken, or Jalapeño & Cheese (Jalapenos from Cedar Rock Ridge). To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. If you do that, she will have your Tamales labeled for you. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.
