Garlic is one of our favorite things to grow and eat. We add it to almost every meal for both its flavor and its nutrients. Typically, it’s planted in the fall, will go dormant through the winter, and then will come back in the spring to be harvested in the summer!

These black beans not only taste great, but are just so simple to make!
