We’re eating caldo verde for dinner tonight, a delicious soup of greens, potatoes, and beans and/or smoked pork, depending on your dietary preferences.
We still have tomatoes: red Roma-types, pink slicers, heirloom beefsteaks and cherry tomatoes.
We expect that cucurbit season is coming to an end with the cooler weather we’re seeing. Expect this week and next week to be the end of the availability of cantaloupes, pattypan squash, lemon cucumbers, and Persian cucumbers. We’ll still have bread and butter cucumber pickles for as long as supplies last.
We also have bean pickles in two flavors: garden beans with achari masala and also yardlong beans with dill and chile. And don’t forget our celtuce pickles, a delicious Asian vegetable that tastes great with stir-fries, rice, and noodle dishes.
Please call ahead if you are interested in our salad mix, as it takes a little preparation. We harvest young leaves from many greens and herbs that we grow and mix it all up together. Because there are some bold flavors in the mix, we recommend enjoying it with a more assertive viniagrette.
Of course you may enjoy leafy greens and herbs on their own: Swiss chard, sweet potato greens, sorrel, New Zealand spinach, Malabar spinach, parsley, sage, thyme, oregano, chives, lovage, salad burnet…
We’ve reorganized out store front and put the t-shirts and wooden kitchen goods back on display. And we’re hard at work on our online store to begin taking sourdough bread orders in November. Stay tuned.
Our business hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9am-5pm. 14 Gonzales Rd, Belen. 505-302-5657. Please park in our driveway and ring our front doorbell for service.
