March 14, 2010, The snow drifts in the garlic field were over waist high this winter. Two days ago there was still about a foot of snow covering things out there. Today the snow is gone and there are little twisted gnarly looking green garlic sprouts everywhere. The poor little things were indeed trying their best to grow under the heavy snow all winter as they hadn't yet sprouted before the snow fell last fall. Most importantly though, the yard is full of robins and red winged blackbirds again. Spring is here!!! (of course that means we'll probably have a blizzard within the next week or two...that's Wisconsin weather though!)

Stone's Throw Urban Farm | Growing fresh food in the city

May 5, 2010, Our spring weather here in Wisconsin has been a month ahead of schedule and the garlic is loving it! Here is a photo of it this evening enjoying a brisk prairie breeze. It's hard to believe the gnarly little things in the photo below turn into such beautiful plants with just a little warm and sunny weather. The garlic scapes should start forming around the end of May and on into early June. We are really looking forward to eating fresh scapes and making some fresh garlic scape pesto again. If you'd like to be notified when the scapes are ready just drop us an email. We'd be happy to sell you some to try. If you are local we can arrange to have you stop out and pick them up and if you're not local and would like some sent to you, we could arrange that as well. We've already snuck a few bulbs out of the ground to eat as fresh green garlic (use them just as you would green onions) and we can already say that this year's crop is absolutely delicious! We promise we'll try our best not to eat them all before harvest time....

August 29, 2010 - Today we were thrilled and honored to welcome Wisconsin's very own Alice in Dairyland, Christine (Lepple) Lindner, to our farm!

For more information on the Alice in Dairyland program and to follow her interesting travels around the state, click It was a true pleasure meeting you Christine!

April 21, 2009 - It's time for the annual April photo of our sprouting garlic field here on the prairie. When you live in Wisconsin it always seems like such a miracle when you see green sprouting each spring! The garlic is looking good so far. Today was rain mixed with snow and it's supposed to be 78 degrees on Friday; it's typical spring weather in Wisconsin. Ya gotta love it! (the 78 degree part that is!)
