Friday - Tomato and Squash and Eggs and Cheese

We have the loveliest tomatoes and squash and we know that our regular market day isn't always the most convenient for some of you - and so because we want you to experience how lovely our produce is - and perhaps taste the best tomato in your whole life . . . 

. . . we've decided to invite you to stop by the farm today ONLY - and pick up a pound or two of tomatoes and squash and some eggs and farm bread at our market. 

There is a scale just under the market patio.
You weigh your own tomatoes - $5 a pound for the freshest and 'bestest' tomato ever and

you weigh your own delicious heirloom squash - $2 a pound . . .

eggs - $5.50 a dozen.

. . . write your name, what you're buying (for our records) and the price
on the pad of paper and leave your payment
and the slip of paper in the silver bucket in the refrigerator. 

Now, you know what goes so well with both tomatoes and squash, right?

Goat cheese! Of course. 

In the All Things Goat (black) refrigerator there is the 
your goat . . .cheese. . .from
the fabulous Crows Dairy.
All Goat prices are on the refrigerator.

We'll be at the farm today, putzing around and so we'll see you and say HI and if this is confusing holler and we'll come over.

Eggplant, Tomatoes and Squash

The season shift into summer produce is going to be amazing at The Simple Farm.  The centerpiece of our farm, tomatoes, are looking really sweet.

Baskets of heirlooms like Yellow and Black Krim will be at Thursday's market along with those delicious yellow pears which are less acidic and the cherry tomatoes.

We tend to have a prolific eggplant season and this will be no exception. I planted some new varities such as Green Apple, Aswad (an Iraqi one) and Cambodian eggplants. We also have the more common eggplants such as the Japanese, Black Beauty and the Rosa Bianca. So, get the eggplant recipes out and start planning for some fabulous summer meals that surround very nutritional eggplant.

Summer squash is one of the most tasting vegetables - EVER. We're even enjoying it raw. Lately, I simply saute it in (tons) of butter, squeeze some lemon on top and fresh snipped thyme. Can't get much better than that.

When you think of eating in the summer months....think about everything that has water in's what hydrates us....eggplant, tomatoes, squash, watermelon, cucumbers, melons, apples, strawberries.

Don't forget, we're shifting summer market hours - Thursdays from 9 - NOON and 4 - 6. We're also contemplating a short Saturday morning market and will announce that soon. It would only run about 7 - 8 weeks.

See you Thursday!

Sunday Morning Farm Moments

A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. Here's glimpses of my Sunday morning stroll. Have a wonderful Memorial Weekend. We are so thankful for all those who gave so we could live.

Good Morning Beautiful Girls!

Overgrown herbs, borage, apple tree. A jungle.
