Musquee de Province Pumpkin
Dave Fresquez from Monte Vista Organic Farm is growing these beautiful Pumpkins they are about 40lb a piece and we where lucky enough to snag two of them - Musquee de Provence - Cucurbita moschata Tender Annual Heirloom. This French heirloom is possibly the ultimate pumpkin. Delicious flavor (some even serve raw, thin wedges), deeply ribbed form, and sumptuous buff color on 20 lb. fruits. Firm flesh is a rich shade of orange, and the pumpkin is named for its musky perfume. Hails from Provence in the South of France. Soil and Water: Pumpkins prefer loam or sandy soil high in organic matter to hold large amounts of moisture. The plants require heavy and even water for best development. Preferred soil pH is between 6.0-7.0. Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost or sow seed directly when soil temperature reaches 70°F. To begin growing earlier, use mulching plastics and row covers to warm the soil. Harvesting and Storage: For...

Farmers Market Greens
Every Year Dave Fresquez from Monte Vista Organics gives us a few tomato plants. They are planted on the patio at Joe’s and show us when Margherita season starts. That is when soil-grown, sun-ripened Heirloom Tomatoes whose color spectrum reaches from deep purple , bright yellow, green striped to ruby red and sizes ranging from pea to small melon are ready to be harvested . . When these Tomatoes are married with Basil and fresh, on premise made Mozzarella, tastebud memories are made. I’m happy to say that the greens at the Farmers Market are available since early May . Every Week there is more in quantity and selection. We receive deliveries or I pick up on Saturdays from Camino de Paz, Monte Vista Organics and Green Tractor Farms. You will see these greens in Salads, mixed Vegetables du Jour, in Quiches, as side dishes, in pastas and any combinations the kitchen can think of. The flavor and texture profile of the different leaves adds variety and...

Bourbon Chutney Burger
Mesquite grilled ground beef from Sweet-CoOp doused with just a touch of bourbon, topped with a mango -bourbon chutney Grass finished and grass fed – what is the difference? Think about it. There is no such thing on this continent as a cow that is NOT grass-fed. Cattle are raised in areas where grasslands are vast – the US West, Argentina, etc. All cattle are grass fed for at least a portion of their lives. So “grass fed” as a label is hardly a distinction, and almost misleading. Furthermore, conventionally raised cattle then spend months in a CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operation) where they are stressed, grain-fed, bedded in manure, breathing toxic ammoniated air, lacking exercise, injected with hormones and antibiotics …and all the rest you probably know. In contrast, cattle that are grass finished to the very day of their demise assure the consumer of meat that is high in Omega 3’s (the excellent fats), CLA’s (claimed in some research to...
