With the official start of fall we are finding ourselves frantically transitioning to the next crops. As we plant starts of onions, broccoli, lettuce, leeks, cabbage, etc. we are harvesting the last of the melons, tomatoes and squash. Our new melons this week include the last planting of Petit Gris de Rennes and Charentais. We will also have the first of the Amarillo Oro and Rugosa di Consenza melons, bright yellow melons with sweet, white flesh. Our winter squash is almost ready. See you at the last Fairfax Market of the season tonight.
We are happy to announce that we will be attending the West End Farmers Market this Sunday, August 11th from 10-2. While we will miss the Glen Ellen Farmers Market and our regulars there we are happy to finally be in our home town. We look forward to seeing all our friends and aquaintances who have wanted us to be in a Santa Rosa Market. Celebrate the end of National Farmers Market week with us. We will continue to attend the Petaluma Eastside Farmers Market on Tuesday mornings from 10-1:30 and the Fairfax Farmers Market on Wednesday evenings from 4-8pm.
Tomatoes and basil, the sweet harbingers of summer. We left for the nation’s Independence Day to enjoy a visit on the lake with our grandchildren and daughter and son-in-law and returned to an explosion of tomatoes and beautiful basil. Time for some amazing bruschetta with some bread from the markets and our garlic, tomatoes and basil. Come visit us at the Glen Ellen market on Sunday from 10-2, the Petaluma Eastside Market on Tuesday from 10-1:30 and the Fairfax Farmers Market on Wednesday from 4-8pm.

In spite of the rain we were at the Petaluma Eastside farmers market Tuesday. We had a limited number of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers (both Persian and Lemon), an abundance of summer squash, zucchini, some chard, lots of Dinosaur Kale, Purple kohlrabi, garlic, beets and of course our delicious honey. See you at the Glen Ellen market this Sunday, June 30th.
My sister, Dayna, has posted a delicious zucchini recipe, Summer Farro Salad, on her blog. http://californiamediterraneandiet.com Looks delicious doesn’t it?
We will be at the Glen Ellen Farmers Market on Sunday, June 16th and every Sunday through the season. This Sunday we will be bringing the first of the season tomatoes. Vine ripened, in dirt. The varieties include Stupice, a Leisen family favorite, Muskovich, a new variety this year, and cherry tomatoes.
