Did ya know it's already almost time to start planting garlic? How does it grow, anyway? Garlic gurus Jerry Ford and Sunny Ruthchild talk about how they prepare next season's tasty crop on Sustainable Farming Association's latest podcast episode. You can even try growing your own at home.
Give Dirt Rich a listen wherever you get your podcasts, or at: https://dirtrichmn.podbean.com/e/13-planting-minnesota-garlic/

“Minnesotans don’t like that garlic. They don’t eat that spicy stuff, dontcha know?” Jerry Ford, Sunny Ruthchild, and their sold-out-by-August harvest beg to differ!

Before they get back out there to plant next year’s garlic crop, they’re taking some time to compare notes and philosophies as they prepare for the next season and climate unknowns. Listen in to today’s Dirt Rich episode for in-depth coverage on site selection, soil prep, timing, mulching, seed garlic and varietal selection, adaptability and more.

The Intrepid Guitar - Episode 2 - Flamenco Guitar Buleria Clasica

If you've been to the festival in the past few years, you've enjoyed the musical talents of Rogue Flamenco while you perused the selections of Minnesota garlic.
You can still enjoy them at home! Scott and his son Aaron recorded a short performance on "The Intrepid Guitar," and shared a couple of photos from last year's festival. Listen while you cook, sit on the porch, or do whatever you do. 👌

Scott Mateo plays "buleria clasica" on flamenco guitar, his son Aaron on cajon. For information about the Minnesota Garlic Festival go to https://www.sfa-mn....
