For us, the 2012 growing season really began last October with garlic planting. I love this crop for so many reasons.  I love that we are still enjoying the long-storing soft neck varieties in our hearty winter meals.  I love that sprouting garlic is one of the first signs of life when the snow melts in the spring.  I love how the hard neck varieties send up garlic scapes in June, just when we are running out of last year's supply and are anxiously anticipating that first, fresh taste of the new crop.

We're gearing up for the 2012 growing season, and will soon be seeding peppers and tomatoes.  We will be at the Klamath Falls Farmers' Market again this year, where you will find us every Saturday between June and October.  We will be growing a wide variety of produce, including:  head lettuce, cabbage, radishes, carrots, beets, tomatoes, sweet peppers, chile peppers, cucumbers, strawberries, seasonal tree fruits, winter squash, sweet onions, shallots, garlic, dahlias and sunflowers.  Hope to see you there!
