But after being up late the night before preparing things, then getting up at 4 to load and drive, and being out in the South Alabama heat for 5 hours, we usually feel like one of our wilted table displays when we finally get back home.Next PostThe cherry tomatoes are going gangbusters! We’ll have our 4 variety Tomato Medley Pack this Saturday at Poplar Head farmers market in Dothan. Stop by and check them out! The variety pack includes: Sun Gold – Has an intense fruity flavor. Exceptionally sweet, bright tangerine-orange cherry tomatoes. Their tendency to split precludes shipping, making these an exclusively fresh-market treat. BHN 624 – (who named this?) A cross between a grape tomato and a cherry tomato. The oval shape of a grape, the juicy consistency of a cherry, and an excellent, sweet-rich flavor. Nice, deep red color. Black Cherry – Sweet and robust. The fruits are almost black in color. (They look more pink to me.) The flavor is dynamic – much like an heirloom. Indigo Cherry Drops – Deep, rosy-red with a black-purple cast that is bursting with sweet flavor. High antioxidant (anthocyanin) from the purple as blueberries have. You Might Also Like At last week’s farmer’s market, I had a lot of people asking how to cut up a patty pan squash. Here’s how I do it. 😀 The thickness of the slices depends on how you want to cook it. Half inch slices, oiled and seasoned with salt/pepper, then baked in the oven are great. (A little parmesan sprinkled on top is even better.) …OR… Small cubes pan fried in butter or bacon grease are awesome! Don’t be scared to try these beauties the next time you see them. Remember, it’s just another tasty summer squash! Check out our website at www.avalonfarms.us for where to get them. #sustainablemarketfarming May 17, 2018 My latest back saving invention.
