Fiore Farm and other news

The farm is doing quite well. We harvested fava beans on Saturday and made a spread with mascrapone cheese , fava beans and arugula. The fava beans and the arugula were from the garden. With the spread we made an open face sandwich with grilled yellow zucchini, shaved Parmesan cheese and more whole fava beans sprinkled on top.

The artichokes have grown so tall the almost touch the sky. The tomatoes plants have blossoms and the basil is growing slowly. The Swiss chard continue to provide month after month. The swiss chard has been in that same bed for almost 2 years. It’s hard to believe.

We are still looking for space to expand the farm. If anyone has suggestions please send us an email.

I found an empty lot on Monterrey  east of Fair Oaks. Power lines hover above the empty lot so I assume it’s owned by Cal Trans or the city or the state. I don’t know. It would be the perfect spot to build some raised beds.

The bread class for May 27 is booked. I will have another class in July.

 

Here are some photographs from the farm.
