(Monticello,MN)Dandylion Hills is a small hobby farm outside of Monticello, MN. I have a huge veggie garden and a small flock of laying hens. I love to garden, make jams, jellies and pickles, and love my animals! We share our farm with 2 horses and a dog named Foster. Also my husband and teenage son. I have had a stand at the Monticello Farmers Market for a couple of years now and am enjoying what I do. I am learning a lot about gardening without the use of chemicals or pesticides and how to suppliment my soil with my own compost and poo from the chickens I grow all kinds of good veggies. My favorites are Spinach, Snap Peas, Green Beans and Peppers. But my recent adventure has been Garlic! I have 7 varieties now and will be adding a couple of more this year. This has been an awesome learning experience on varieties, how to grow it and how to use it. I have also ventured into Canning. I enjoy making different kinds of Jams, Jellies and Pickles. I try to make things that are different, that you cannot just buy at the local grocery store. I also try to use things out of my own garden for the canning. If I cannot get it out of my garden, then I try to buy it locally. My last resort is the grocery store. I have really had fun with some of the jellies used for hour de vours, Strawberry Habenero Jam, Raspberry Jalepeno Jelly and most recently Garlic Jelly. At my stand at the Farmers Market I sell produce, fresh eggs, jams, jellies, pickles and baked goods.
