We love this point in the season when the precious heirloom tomatoes are so bountiful that you can make tarts with them. These tomatoes came from Nadine over at Birdsong Orchards in Watsonville. She has a genius talent when it comes to growing beautiful tomatoes.
Recently we made a visit to Blossom’s Biodynamic Farm here in Bonny Doon. The farmers Delmar McComb and Carin Fortin are growing some of the most amazing vegetables, fruit and herbs. This place is full of many lessons about the connections between community and agriculture.
We were invited by Carin to join the lunch and eat some wonderful food offered by a local chef Lyona who cooks the midday meal on Tuesdays in exchange for access to the produce grown at the farm. The dishes were made exclusively from the products of the farm!
