Tomatoes are still the talk of the town, but pole beans, figs, and frying peppers are also worth shouting about from the rooftops. Read on for more seasonal inspirations.
With the few weeks of sunshine down in the Watsonville area , Coke and Luna Farms are both killing the game with their fantastic heirloom tomatoes. Also delivering outstanding fruit is Terra Firma Farms from Petaluma. Our current mixed heirlooms cases include- Amana orange, black pineapple, Berkeley pink tie dye, Cherokee purple, Costoluto genovese, lemon boy, pink beauty.
