Fall vegetables, that mature in cooler temperatures, are available online now for shipment beginning next week. "Fall" or "Cool season" Vegetables will begin shipping August 11th and continue through September as quantities last. Every year we plant a full collection of the most beautiful vegetable plants, all ready to go into your garden. Many of these vegetables such as Arugula and Mustard Greens can be harvested very quickly and will continue throughout the fall. A few vegetables will even overwinter such as Cabbage and Collards! Try growing some of our greens this fall and add nutrition and superb taste to your table.
Marinated Roasted Tomatoes:
Quarter and squeeze tomatoes to drain the juices slightly using your fingers to remove some of the seeds. Chop Sweet onions and Sweet Red or Yellow Bell Peppers about the same size as tomato wedges. Add 2-3 Rosemary sprigs, Oregano, Marjoram, Thyme, Basil or other fresh herbs, several cloves of garlic, crushed slightly or pressed, salt & pepper to taste. Roast in a 300 degree oven for about 45 minutes to an hour or until all vegetables are soft and fragrant. Use as a spread on crusty bread, as a pasta sauce or for the bread salad listed below. Great to freeze or can in jars for later use.
