Coming in July: Bread Class, Jam Making Class and Music

July is almost here and we have a few things planned. We will have a bread class on a Tuesday evening. Hopefully we won’t have the unexpected excitement we experienced in May. We will have a jam making and canning class. This will be a joint effort with Greta (South Pasadena Farmer’s Market Manager). This class will be on a Tuesday as well. Most likely we will make two jams. A fig jam and a strawberry jam. Figs and strawberries are in season.

We will also have music in July. Dates to be decided. Music will be from 6:00pm til 7:30pm on Fridays and or Saturday evenings.

Actual dates will be decided by Friday.

Here are some photographs of fruits and vegetables from the garden.





Farm Life

In the movie The Kids are Alright the character played by  Mark Ruffalo owns a restaurant that is somehow connected to an urban farm. I don’t know if he owns the farm or if he just gets his produce from the farm. I love that urban farm. It reminds me of Italy. It reminds me of gardens of my childhood. It is really cool. My dream is to create a farm like that for Fiore Market Cafe. I don’t know how feasible it is, but for now we will continue to farm as much as we can on the space we have. I took a few photographs today. The tomatoes are starting to ripen. The basil is full and very healthy. The artichokes are soaring for the sky.





I still have a couple of tomato plants if anyone is interested.

On the mobile yelp applications someone said we were shabby chic which we know to be true. I’ve just never heard anyone say it. I took a few photographs of a new (shabby chic) magazine holder. Look what book is peeking out.


Well, we are Fiore

Since the name of our Cafe is Fiore Market Cafe we take many photographs of flowers (fiori in Italian). I have been buying these at Trader Joe’s The colors are so bright. The flowers seem to have been dyed. Enjoy.

The garden is doing well. The tomatoes, basil and artichokes are growing very quickly. Looking forward to the first tomato.

I have some Black Krum tomato plants available. I planted them from seed. Today I replanted them in individual plastic containers. If anyone would like one let me know.
