Can you guess what this is?

I asked this question to my friends on Facebook. The response I received was....An odd pineapple?  Giant celery? Something scary?  This my dear friends, is called a celeriac or celery root and is coming to a farmer's market near you.

Gourmet Garlic is here

Our popular garlic has a strong pungent flavor when eaten raw and sweet flavor when cooked. It can store up to 9 months in dry and cool conditions. We hope to have garlic to last until Fall but stop in early for bigger bulbs or to stock up.  Come visit us at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market.

Check out these garlic makeover pictures.

Tomatoes, Peppers and Herbs are growing good

Our greenhouse is almost full with tomatoes, peppers and herbs. We are looking forward to another great season at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market. Opening day is Saturday, April 30th so look for us there.

We will have many new heirloom tomatoes as well as our popular varieties. Some of our new selections were requested by customers and we are excited to be able to provide them.

Arkansas Traveler
Black from Tula
Isis Candy
Polish Linguisa
Prudens Purple
Red Pear
San Marzano
Viva Italia
Yellow Brandywine
Yellow Pear

With the recent warm weather our garlic has emerged from the ground and looking very healthy. To our disappointment last year we ran out of garlic by Mid August. We hope to have enough garlic to last until the end the market season.

Our Japanese Cucumbers are in season

Japanese cucumbers are great for eating alone, salads, or pickles. A type of burpless with tender skin, seedless, and no bitterness. Once you try this one, you'll be back for more. We will have these in season and pickling cucumbers too. Also in season are beans, beets, red and golden potatoes.

Our special garlic has been harvested from the fields and are drying in our greenhouse at this moment. We'll have a good supply until Halloween but it's not too early to stock up. Our larger garlic bulbs tend to run out earlier in the season. Stop by and see us soon.

Garlic Scapes

We'll have garlic scapes at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market (Stalls 411&413) this weekend. Garlic scapes can be used in stir fry, pesto, or grilled. When cooked it has a sweet mild garlic taste. They are only available for a limited time so stop by and pick up your garlic scapes before they're gone for the season.
