Please note- during planting season (Oct 13th-31st) I will only ship on a weekly basis, typically every Tuesday or Thursday. Orders must be placed 48 hours before my shipping day to be sure to go in that mailing. I apologize for those looking for planting stock, I'm in a rush to get garlic in myself! For those stocking up your kitchens, thanks for your patience as I get next year's garlic in the ground. Payments accepted via all major credit cards, PayPal, Amazon Pay, and mailed-in checks

Lúnasa

Lúnasa
Lúnasa is one of the eight holidays that formed the “spokes” on the wheel of the year, four of them being the summer and winter solstices (longest and shortest days of the year) and spring and autumn equinoxes (length of daylight being the same as length of night), and four holidays that land just about between these. Lúnasa is roughly six weeks after we experience summer solstice, where long days propel heavy crop growth, and six weeks before we hit the autumn equinox, where the length of day will be so short that many overwintering plants (and animals) will be getting daylength triggers to put on weight and prepare to survive the darkness and cold.
