Look at me go! Well, I had to stop and get off to take the pic. Insert Jill on tractor, cheering to herself, “RAAAAA! AND THE CROWD GOES WILD!!”
I spent today digging potatoes and garlic 🙂
I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow ’til 1.
I have tender, red skinned early potatoes and baby Red Thumb Fingerlings. ALSO…freshly dug garlic, uncured, in 4 varieties: Tuscan, Ichelium Red, Thai Purple and Chet’s Italian. There was a big snafu in the fall at garlic planting time, when Pappy Lamb wandered over and dumped out/mixed up all my bags of garlic seed, but I’ve been able to sort them out based on color and whether they are softneck or hardneck, etc. I’m bringing my whole crop besides what I have saved for seed, and except for the Susanville variety (for next week) so bring your garlic money!! Garlic is easy to cure. Just hang it up in a shady spot for 2 weeks.
I also have my first cucumbers + green curly kale, red curly kale and rainbow lacinato.
The Chet’s Italian garlic variety is said to have been discovered by “Chet” in a feral garden in Washington….uhhhh…that sounds to me like it was an organic farmer’s current season garden, upon which he trespassed and stole the garlic then named it after himself. I’m just sayin’, mine and certain other organic farmers that I know have had some pretty feral looking garlic patches 🙂 And if Chet happened upon mine before today, I’m sure he’d abscond with the fruits of my labor while feeling fully righteous about his thievery.

The wheat is headed out and starting to turn! Won’t be long til we hit the Amber Waves stage. That’s a science term, people. The tall stuff standing up over the wheat is rye, I’ve used it as a cover crop in the past and apparently there is still some seed in the ground. It’s not much, but it happens. Hopefully no one will mind.
I had to test some out to make sure they were amazing or above 🙂
See you tomorrow <3
