The intersection at Letort Road and North Duke Street is now officially open! The construction signs have been taken away and no need to take the detour around the farm anymore.
Your Farmers have been busy harvesting garlic for the past few weeks. The bulbs are large enough and the green color in the plant was starting to turn brown. Browning of the plant is a sign that the garlic is ready to harvest and should be done as quickly as possible definitely during rainy times. We had to race against the rain so the garlic bulbs were not sitting in the wet ground rotting.
Now the garlic is in storage because they are going through their curing process. The whole garlic plant is laid out on tables in the barn so the last amount of energy can be put into the bulb. This should be done for about two weeks. It allows the bulb to be stored for a long time at your home. (In May I still had garlic from last fall and it was still delicious!) In the next week or so we will be trimming off the garlic plant and cleaning the bulbs so you can use the garlic in your cooking!
PYO Field - Vegetable of the Week
Harvesting is done once the greater part of the fruit is covered in a golden orange color.
Storage: can last around a week and should be kept on counter not in refrigerator
Cooking this delicious cherry tomato can be done in a saute with garlic and basil (can be found in PYO), add the tomato to a sandwich, or just eat them plain.

Harvest List - New Recipes!
- Cabbage - storage: refrigerate in salad crisper. Do not remove outer leaves prior to storage. Firm, compact cabbage will keep up to 3 weeks, but its nutritive value diminishes with time. If the outer leaves wilt, just remove them before cooking.
