|Edible Gardeners - Grow Your Own Saffron!|
|Saffron bulbs available for a limited time.|
Saffron Crocus blooms in the fall. The three red stigmas of this plant are harvested to produce the delicious and prized seasoning – saffron. This is the actual saffron used for making yellow rice in Indian curry dishes and Spanish paella. Two dozen plants will supply enough of this expensive spice for a few outstanding meals the very first year! Harvest only the stigmas, and harvest the same day the flower blooms.
Good to know: This spice is so expensive because it takes around 50,000 flowers to produce one pound of dried saffron.
Note: We suggest labeling your saffron crocus patch so it won’t be confused with a different fall blooming (and inedible) crocus in the future.

|Evaluating This Year's Garden|
|FROM WILMA: As the summer growing season winds down, now is the time to make notes, take pictures, and evaluate your garden. Is there a gorgeous annual blooming now that you admire? Make a note to plant it next year. The same goes for new or heirloom veggies you discovered this year. I planted ‘Lazy Wife’ beans for the first time this year and really like them but they take way more space than I allotted - I took a picture of their “jungle” to remind me to plant them elsewhere next year.|
Last spring I made a note to add more bulbs to a garden bed. Bulb shipments are starting to arrive and now is the time to purchase them for the best selection. Store them in a cool, dry place until time to plant later in fall.
This morning I was down at the Farm and Joe and Matt were loading the van with perennials for the Garden Center. After the perennials are unloaded, they will be back for shrubs. Shipments of trees, evergreens, perennials, and fruits are arriving from other growers, too. Fall is in the air and now is a great time for planting!
