FINALLY, those giant clusters of green tomatoes are beginning to turn red, purple, yellow and pink ! In tomorrow’s share will be both heirlooms as well as a rainbow pint of cherry tomatoes. I spent a few hours yesterday wrestling with the staking and trellising of the tomato plants in the rear high-tunnel that are literally 10 feet tall. I bought 10 foot metal conduit to see if that works – Ridiculous! I’m calling this the Magic Tomato House – it reminds both Ron and me of the ride at Epcot – The Future of Food!
Super cute pic of Garden Pixie Joyce who is, as always, a tremendous help at the farm! She made a beeline for the sunflowers blooming in the center of the spring field for her flower this week.
Farm Food Favorite: Sauteed Pattypans with Tomato Sauce!
Slice into strips and sautee with garlic and olive oil. In a separate pan cook tomatoes, garlic and basil and add sauce to top of pattypans. A customer at market last Saturday said she loves to grill pattypans – again slice into strips and brush will olive oil and herbs. Enjoy!
I will see you all tomorrow at the CSA pickup from 10-12 at Fromage. Please bring a bag for your goodies.
Until next week…
