The CobraHead Newsletter
October 2009
Hello, Friends of CobraHead,
Most of you are familiar with our garden tools, but not everyone is familiar with our company.  We are a family business, and we are serious home gardeners.  Here is some gardening and food information that we hope you find useful.  Let us know what you think, and if you like what you see, please share it with your friends.
Leek potato With all the hype about "Julie and Julia" by Julie Powell these days Judy recalls her first attempt at Leek and Potato Soup from "Mastering the Art of French Cooking".  Judy shares her current recipe which uses spuds from our excellent heirloom blue potato harvest.  However, any color potato will work.
Funnel Bug Destroyer Japanese beetles invaded Wisconsin only a few years ago, and they are currently our worst insect problem (other than mosquitoes, of course.)  To combat the problem, Noel rigged up an inexpensive and efficient beetle collector. Here's the information you need to make one yourself.

Our CobraHead Long Handle helps you do a lot of gardening while standing up.  Not everyone uses long handled tools properly.   We offer some suggestions on saving your back and how we came up with the long handled design. (Read more)
It is the mission of CobraHead to help people grow their own food and to provide exceptional products and services to all gardeners.  We try hard to "walk the walk" when it comes to issues of sustainability and in deciding what is best for ourselves and the environment as we grow our little company.  We've chosen to make our tools locally, here in Wisconsin, and we think that bigger is not necessarily better.  Gardening might just be earth's great hope, and in any case it's a great hobby.
Thank you,
Noel, Judy, Geoff and Anneliese

Many of you know that CobraHead produces extremely useful garden tools here in Wisconsin.  Our little company is dedicated to helping all people garden and to making gardening easier.  We promote community and urban gardening, gardening education projects, and helping people grow their own food.
If you like our newsletter and our products or if you have some suggestions, we'd love to hear from you. 
We don't have a big advertising budget, so "word-of mouth" means more to us than you can imagine.  If you have gardening friends or if you know potential gardeners who might be interested in CobraHead, please forward this newsletter to them. 
Thank you,

The CobraHead Team

Noel, Judy, Geoff, and Anneliese Valdes
