Summer Bounty

Farm Update

Summer’s winding down, but the garden bounty is bumper.    We’ve definitely noticed a huge difference in the garden since our neighbor removed the towering 80ft pecan tree.  More sun = less mildew and a seemingly more productive summer growing season.

Every square inch of the raised beds are filled and overflowing with beans, cucumbers, basil, tomatoes, squash and hearty summer greens.

Farm Box

Partnering with two other local (organic) farmers in the LA area, we are happy to be able to bring you sweet corn & watermelon — that are to DIE for!!!!

Our two fig trees are producing like crazy so these purple beauties will also be in the farm boxes this week. Black figs are an excellent source of anti-oxidants and minerals like calcium, copper, potassium, manganese, iron, selenium

Also our mexicola avocado tree, which is fruiting early this year, and loaded with small teardrop fruits.  Did you know that the Mexicola Avocado originated about 1910 right here in Pasadena, California?  These small, cold tolerate avocados have smooth, black skin which is edible. Yes, you can eat the skin!

In addition to your super fresh veggies and fruits, adds on this week include raw honey, assorted fruit preserves and sourdough bread baked our neighbor and small-scale artisan baker that sources her flour from the famous Grist and Toll mill in Pasadena.

Produce offerings change on a seasonal basis (that’s a good thing!) Nature is not a 24-7 convenience store.

    I envy you. I live in central Texas and my garden does not even look close. I have a bumper crop of okra and watermelon, but that’s about it.
