The French word for “eggplant” is so elegant – aubergine.
Yes, it’s definitely summer.
If you noticed at the farmers market, we’re vending loads of different summer squashes, and cucumbers are starting to really come on. We’re growing five varieties of cucumbers in greenhouses. One is a pickling variety, and the rest are primarily slicers, but of course, one can preserve those too. We got a bit behind in trellising them, but the crops seem pretty happy. The lemon cucumbers take more time to produce, but they are growing and hopefully soon, they’ll have fruits.
Be sure to stop by the Willits Thursday Farmers Market this week or the Ukiah Saturday Farmers Market to see and taste what’s fresh from the farm!

While the winter season is our main produce season, we are growing a few summer crops for market at the Ukiah Saturday Farmers Market, Bar Agricole, and a tiny bit at Ukiah Natural Foods Co-op.
we have loads & loads of sungold tomatoes! They are so fruity and sweet. Get them at the Saturday Farmers Market for $3/pint or 2 pints for $5.
These are Little Finger eggplant. We also have Black Beauty, Nadia, and Rosa Bianca eggplant. Also at the Farmers Market, $3/pound.
Here is one of our zucchini patches. Our Raven (green) and Sebring (bright yellow) zucchini is so flavorful. Get a deal on them at the Farmers Market - $1/pound. (Winter crops have been transplanted into the section in the background.)
We’re also growing juicy Big Beef and sweet Pink Beauty slicer tomatoes for the Farmers Market and Westside Renaissance Market. Sometime this week, we’ll be slicing and drying some of them in the greenhouse so we can enjoy the summer flavor when they’re out of season. Yummy!
