My garden radishes do not look like this. I planted them close together and harvested the large ones with hopes that the smaller radishes would grow. Instead the smaller ones bolted during the hot days last week. Bolting means that they are growing flowers to produce seeds. In other words, I should have harvested them all at once 🤦🏼♀️

The first of many beautiful bunches to go to the drying shed. .
The old farmer’s tale “on a quiet night you can hear the corn grow” may seem impossible, but this myth has been proven to be true! It’s been determined that while growing, corn makes a crackling sound that’s very similar to the sound made when breaking a piece of corn. Making this even more intriguing is the belief that the crackling sound is created by tiny breakage events during which the plant breaks then repairs itself to create growth, becoming larger and larger over time. This process is suggested to be similar to the method used by the human body to develop muscle 🌽 💪🏻
You had me at Coppa... coppa is a traditional Italian and Corsican pork salume and is distinguished by its deep red color and heavy marbling. We source all of our cured meats from @bussetofoods located in Fresno which has a dry climate much like Italy that suits the sensitive process of dry curing the meats. Request it on your next board!

Summer produce is here on our farmer's tables! While stone fruit has been the buzz of the markets, with juicy peaches, plums, apricots, and cherries filling our market bags, we can’t overlook the lovely vegetables that are coming into season. Multi-colored peppers, green beans, and squash are such a treat! This week, enjoy the savory produce of summer with heirloom rice, as Koda Farms joins us with their monthly appearance at the Wednesday market.
