SMOKING GARLIC …………………
Years ago, we started smoking jalapeños for chipotles. Our first smoker was an old refrigerator connected to the
fire box. Then we added tomatoes to the mix. Bill built the wonderful big smoker he uses now and threw the garlic into the mix. This year we smoked our first plums.
Still good supplies in most varieties and planning on having apples through the holidays and into the New Year. Yeah !
No frost yet, so we will continue to pick cherries and a few slicers. Water is off, so flavors will concentrate. Then we strip for juice and roasting.
Most all big ones were sold last week. I am sure there are a few that were hiding, we do have medium Blue Hubbards. We have the space to take orders and store for Thanksgiving etc.
GREENS, ROOTS AND HERBS –
We are harvesting a small bed of cylindras and starting some carrots this week. The next small field of greens will be in about two to three weeks. Basil still holding for at least this coming week.
