SPEAKING OF TOMATOES…….
Not sure why, but the really strange weather years at Windrose have the best tomatoes. Even the fruit coming from the tomato walk, which is all hand watered, are the way I like them. Probably a bit more acid than some folks may like. But that works so well when combining with other items. The funniest year (looking back!!) was when we trialed planting into turned down cover crop. The weather may have been cooler like this year and we did not even start picking until after Labor Day. So we turned off the water and let them go dry-land. And got the best ever !!! These remind me of then. Which makes me smile.
ANOTHER THING THAT MAKES ME SMILE – TOMATO WEEKEND IS COMING IN TWO WEEKS….
This is always a great time here. Last year we celebrated with food created by Zack and Zach from Salt’s Cure, with cocktails by Matthew Biancanello. Super special..
THIS YEAR !!!- our chefs are JENSEN LORENZEN, DANIEL MATTERN & ROXANA JULLPAT. Our wines will be chosen by ALI from 15 Degrees in Templeton.
JENSEN is our local hero, who has a serious cult following from his wonderful food creations while at Cass House. So if you are one of that glorious group, here is one of the few chances you will have this year to savor his talents.
DANIEL & ROXANA are brilliant chefs from Los Angeles. They were together at Cook’s County. We have been friends since meeting them through Suzanne Goin at AOC and Lucques. We are so thrilled to have all three together. Not only do they love and honor beautiful local produce, but they are exceptional people as well. We believe this is totally reflected in their food. Please join us if you can. There a few seats still open. Contact FARMsteadEd for reservations. Thank you. You have my word this will be an evening you will remember.
APPLES- small amounts, great quality, still comng in….
VEGGIES – nice tomatoes :) – cherry, salad and slicers.
Summer squash still good:) Peppers starting to smile at us.. Doing later plantings of onions, radishes and carrots, way too busy with the weeds !!! Potatoes will be back in October. Being tickled ( or weeded) as we write.
