The weekly Farmers markets have come to a close for the season, but a monthly one will be coming soon. Stay tuned for when and where. We can always use more help with the markets, so if anyone would like to volunteer, please contact Sherry Shelley [firstname.lastname@example.org], or myself.
I just read that Jerusalem artichokes are good as a pro-biotic...another reason to eat the little knobby buggers.
I got all my garlic planted...reminded me of a story of a new chef - he hadn't cooked with garlic yet, but was trying a new soup recipe that called for 4-5 cloves of garlic. You guessed it, he thought that meant the whole garlic bulb. After chopping up about 3 heads of garlic (approximately 15 cloves), he knew something was amiss. Luckily his family liked garlic, and they didn't have to worry about vampires for weeks!!
If you are a fan of the books or HBO series "Game of Thrones", you recognize the title of this blog. Winter is that wonderful time of year to curl up next to the fire with a good book and some homemade hot cocoa.
