In the heat of the day - Lettuce be wise

Hello Everyone,

It is that famous time of year here in our beloved valley when the temperatures can creep up past 100 degrees just when we get used to maybe, well, 90 degrees. Speaking as a 3rd year veteran of Coachella Valley summers, I was quickly corrected by one of our farmers from Thermal who has lived here most of his life who said, " well, you really don't get used to it, you just accept it, learn to flow with it, and get indoors as much as possible."



So, let's all keep… Continue

Fresh Pick of the Week for April 13, 2009

Certified Farmers Market Fresh Pick of the week: Summer Squash



Locally-raised fresh Summer Squash is available from several farmers at the market in a variety of shapes and sizes. This versatile fruit (that’s right – although we all think of Squash as a vegetable, it’s technically a fruit!) is one of America’s favorite side dishes, and although we mostly consume the fruit (harvested while the rinds are still tender), every part of the Squash plant is edible… Continue

A GREAT READ

Hi Foodies,

We have been reading a wonderful book given to Paul and I by one of the Farmers, which also has been recommended by many of you as well. We can't seem to put it down, but we do a chapter at a time to relish in the read. It's all so familar. The title is Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. It's funny, informative and gives you a true sense of what is going on with our food supply.

Have a great week,… Continue

Spring is here!

While the rest of the country is still shoveling snow and working on finding a small hint of sunlight, we are lucky to have this beautiful temperate climate.

It is sort of like the routine of shopping for fresh vegetables and produce.… Continue
