Mixed Medley and Mixed Emotions

Summer is Fall; Fall is Summer. Our seasonality has broken open, leaving us with an array of goodies from Summer and Fall.

The Farms' Offerings 101

The days may be getting shorter, but the harvest is coming in longer and stronger from a summer that just won't quit.

Warm Season
Peppers are at their peak now from both Happy Boy produce and Ibarra Organics. Look out especially for Happy Boy's Sweet Shishido Peppers and Spicy Padron Peppers. Sweet, spicy and antsy to be fried up by you.

It's only a matter of weeks before sun shortened days, cooler nights and rain, will bring an end to the great tomatoes we have been getting the past two months. So stock up on Dry Farmed tomatoes from Thomas Farms.

Frog Hollow's peaches are just a memory, but the pears are still sweet and full of summer goodness and a few more pluots and plums are coming off the trees along with the leaves.

Crisp Season
Apples from Smit Organic Orchards are hitting their peak with all of your favorites including Pippins (think pies), Fujis (think lunch boxes) and those ever sweet Galas for between meal snacks.
If apples are here than my favorite persimmons (Fuyu) can't be far behind. We love to peel and slice these and throw them into our salads. At J& J Ranch this fruit will put some Fall color on your table.
There's so much more to Fall than a little more night and a little less day.

The best way to keep that summer glow is to can and sauce the season's yummy yields - especially when it comest to the tomatoes. Check out this recipe from Happy Boy for a Heirloom Tomato Sauce that you could freeze/refrigerate and have fulfilling tomatoes all year round.
