Sweet September

Our fall season will be kicking off with everyone’s summer favorites. Fill up on corn, tomatoes, beans, summer squash and watermelon, if that’s your thing. They will be fading away as the cooler temps move in.

Recommended this week

Plum Tomatoes – Not just for sauce. “Juliet,’ a small plum, that is great fresh in a panzanella salad. Rich tomato flavor, that’s as snack-able as a cherry and great on a burger or sandwich.

Patty Pan Squash – Delicate sweet cousin of zucchini. Simply grilled or sautéed = yum.

Lettuce – Romaines this week. Sturdy enough to anchor a salad that eats like a meal. Check out this ‘‘Salad greens by the numbers’ chart. Go Romaine!
