It's #tomatotuesday πŸ”₯ Oven on 425 - coat #homegrowncherrytomatoes in EVOO, salt, and pepper. On parchment, roast for 35-45 minutes until the aroma of gooey charred tomatoes is all you can think about. Transfer to a pot, burst tomatoes with a wooden spoon πŸ₯„ then add minced garlic. Simmer until aromatic. End with a splash of balsamic and a pat of butter. Melt, stir, spread on everything. 🌱 πŸ… πŸ…πŸ… 🀀 ...

How many passion fruit can you see in this photo? Funny thing is, this is about one TENTH of the passion fruit wall at one of our #corporatefarms. Often spotted at more than $5 a pop at farmers markets and boutique grocers, don't you think it would be a wise investment to add a vine to your #backyardediblegarden? ...

When your #urbanfarmers are even radder than your urban farms. 🌾 | Homegrown garlic is a trophy marking the hard work and sweat our farmers throw down year-round. This winter crop, now gleaming in the sun, is better than you'll ever find at a conventional grocer. #priceless #garlictrophy ...

We dream of living in a world where #organicproduce is grown in all types of urban settings, personal kitchen gardens, small farms serving small communities, window ledge herbs, rooftop veggie patches, even high-rise allotments (which are so exhilarating for us to build!).

Instagram post 17930002510590971 Ok, serious #summertime craving πŸ‘‰  Fried Green Tomato Sandwiches. When the wait is toooo long, pluck a few and fry them up, slather mayo onto toasted #sourdoughbread, add a slice of cheese and a few #pickledjalapenos, and eat over the kitchen sink.

Nasturtiums are delicious (and spicy!) #edibleflowers that self-seed. Add the blossoms to salads, pickle their seeds, wrap sashimi in #nasturtiumleaves, but whatever you do, keep them in containers. These gorgeous plants are considered invasive in temperate climates like Southern California where they easily #overwinter. Their vines take over hillsides and can make it difficult for #californianativeplants to thrive. So we recommend them for your #containergarden and #raisedbedgarden only! πŸ‘ˆ ...
