What's up today at the Farm?

Well, in addition to the usual chores--garden maintenance and the like--we continue preparations today for the Flea to Fab Market and Craft Show this Saturday.

It's a lot of work getting these insanely good teas and herb/spice combinations blended, ground, and packaged but, when you have a passion for it as we do, it's a labor of love. We hope you think so, too.

We're finishing a little work left over from yesterday--packaging teas--and starting on the spice blends this morning. The house really smells wonderful and it will only get better when we start packaging the spices.

We completed "spiffing" and polishing on the booth. We were set up outside a lot of the year so, we're not being picky here, it was in need of some attention.

While we were at it, we got a couple of new tablecloths and a few items to make it more "holiday." Put some big red bows on the coyote posters... Holiday cheer, eh.

If you're planning to be there Saturday, you can pre-order teas and spice blends for pickup. If you pre-order, we'll have your stuff packaged up and ready to go. We do expect, with a good market, to sell out of items so pre-ordering guarantees you get what you want.

And, finally, this is what it looked like while doing the early morning chores today.

Keeping and Storing: Herbs and Spices

We put up a new page covering proper storage of spices, herbs, and blends. It's here:

Short and to the point: It's not really the "fast food mentality" we're celebrating by gardening, farming, and participating in farmers markets. We're not a part of the culture where standards, and expectations, are consistently lowered in a flight to rock bottom. We believe cooking isn't a competition--isn't confrontational and neither is learning about food, its production, or preparation. ~ Smiling Coyote Farm.

Spring Prep

Yes, it's February: Cold, dry, February. But, things are stirring at Smiling Coyote Farm.

Seeds are starting in flats, prep for planting is underway, planning is ongoing, and the Spring garden season is just around the corner. Our first Farmers Market meeting is the end of the month. It's time to get moving.

We'll be publishing our plant list soon. If you have a suggestion or request, let us know so we can get it in the ground for you.
