Time For Basil and Shishitos

We  finally are harvesting some fruiting vegetables: summer squash, Anaheim peppers and … shishito peppers! We are so very pleased to raise the little flavor bombs known as shishitos this year. They have many preparations, but the easiest is probably tossed in a hot skillet slicked with olive oil, showered with salt, moved around in the pan a bit until things start blistering, and then serving.

And here comes another clear sign of summer — this week we began harvesting Genovese basil. Let’s make it a pesto and pepper kind of weekend, yes? We look forward to seeing you in the restaurants (where you of course will find all of our from-the-farm vegetables, grains, legumes and meats) and at the Market on Saturday.
