Picking the last of the tomatoes is a little melancholy, but there are still plenty of cold weather vegetables to keep our spirits up.  Cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, chard, kale and spinach are on our menus, both for canning and cooking events.  The herb gardens are beautiful, bountiful with basil, lavender, oregano, cilantro and more.  Our shelves are filling with grape jellies, apples and soups, all available to you for a delicious meal at home.

 

August 17  We had a big day yesterday canning corn, beans, cabbage and tomatoes.  Our freezer is filled with fresh fruit, pesto and sweet coleslaw for our winter classes and catering.  Taste testing at the Cannery is always encouraged!  A variety of salsas have been a hit, made with fresh corn, tomatoes, cabbage and even peaches.  Current favorites:  Rum Peaches and Savory Marinara Sauce.

July 10 Rain, beautiful rain!  Our sustainable watering system filled up with the storm this afternoon! This morning we replanted spinach, lettuce, cucumbers and beans for a late summer crop.  We picked beans and cucumbers to can tomorrow.  Our shelves are beginning to fill with jellies, dilly beans and soon, sweet and hot peppers and relishes.

June 30  The garden is in full swing!  We have red tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and zucchini in addition to many other vegetables and herbs.  Strawberry season finished and black raspberries are ripe for picking.  Our classes now include pickling and pressure cooking in addition to jams, jellies and fruit butters, all created with fresh produce from the farm.  Come visit us for a tour or a class soon!

June Garden

The Glass Rooster Cannery offers community garden plots starting Spring of 2011.  For more information, email jeannie@glassroostercannery.com.

 

 

 

After rototilling the ground we seeded a radish overcrop.  The radish will grow to cut down on weeds and be tilled in the Spring to provide nutrients for summer crops.

We planted garlic in the community garden to be harvested in Fall 2011.
