Tamales! Opening Bell: Honey, Ghost Peppers, Buffalo, Sweet Potatoes!

Good afternoon!

Fall weather signals the near end of summer vegetables, but just the beginning for others. This afternoon I finished planting 700 garlic cloves that will become 700 large organic garlic bulbs in June 2019! I also planted 36 cloves in 2" pots so you can grow some garlic in your garden or flower bed. I have grown over 20 varieties of garlic over the years, but now I only grow this variety because it does so well in our climate. Very hardy and tasty!

Buffalo items have just been listed by Ratchford Farms. There’s also a good supply of beef bones for bone broth.

Thanks a lot to Strack Farm for being the extra tomatoes, lettuce and turnips on Friday!

Now is the perfect time to plant perennial flowers that will bloom for years, starting next 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 (Organic Jalapenos from Cedar Rock Ridge). To place an order, please add a note to your CLG order, or text me at 501-339-1039. Delicious with sides of refried beans and rice, topped with a bit of salsa and sour cream. They freeze very well so get some for several meals.

Be sure to SEARCH for your favorite items using the search field. About 500 items available now!
