Tomatoes, Blackberries, Pickling Cukes, and More!!

So much more this week is tantalize your tastebuds


Tomatoes are finally starting to develop their full color and flavor. They are in limited quantities this week but will definitely be increasing in quantity in the following weeks.

This week we have mixed cherry tomatoes, Pink Berkeley Tie Dye, Ananas Noire (Black Pineapple), Ruffled Paste, Striped Roman Paste, Pink and Yellow Beefsteak, Yellow Brandywine, Paul Robeson, and small red tomatoes. Many of the heirlooms are an astounding 1 1/2-2 pounds each.


Some many peppers… The usual EXTRA LARGE green peppers and Flavorburst we have been carrying, but now we have added the medium purple sweet peppers, sweet banana peppers, mild hot banana peppers, jalapeno and purple chili peppers.

Green Beans!!

New this week, freshly picked green beans, purple green beans and yellow wax beans.
Purple green beans are an amazingly beautiful royal purple color when picked, but magically change color to a vivid green when cooked. They also have higher levels of anti-oxidants.


This week we have wild harvested blackberries. Smaller than our cultivated blackberries (which should be ready in the next one to two weeks) but still quite tasty.

And garden huckleberries, ever heard of them?? They look similar to blueberries, but are very tart. NOT TO BE EATEN RAW! This beautiful berries must be cooked with sugar, but make amazing pies and jams.

Pickling Cucumbers

We unfortunately do not have any long slicing cucumbers this week, but do have pickling cucumbers, lemon cucumbers, and some tasty little gems known as Mexican Sour Gherkins or Cucamelons.
