Fresh Forecast: Local and organic cantaloupe, slicing tomatoes and more

Plenty of mouthwatering goodness in our produce departments this week (and I literally can say this, because my mouth is watering anticipating the local Inaba Farms cantaloupe awaiting at home). Here's a sampling of what's in store via my weekly chat with our produce guru, Joe Hardiman: 

  • Tree-ripened organic red haven peaches from Twin Springs Ranch in Rice, Wash. (I sliced some up with Many Hands organic blueberries atop granola for breakfast with a splash of milk. Yum! FYI, those blues are $1 off per pint this week).
  • Plenty of organic local greens from Rent's Due Ranch in Stanwood, Wash., plus organic zucchini (if neighboring gardeners have not already shared their bounty. I have one friend baking a chocolate and zucchini cake tonight!).
  • Fresh carrots from Nash's Organic Produce in Sequim, Wash., along with field-grown organic cucumbers
  • Organic black-rind watermelon from Inaba Farms in Wapato, Wash.
  • LADYBUG slicing tomatoes from Pride of the Umpqua in Roseburg, Ore. (so popular they're hard to keep in stock. Ask in the produce section).
  • Still plenty of organic Walla Walla onions, ripe for the grilling (or sandwich making, or adding to salads)
  • Bicolor organic corn from Egor Farms of Scio, Ore.

Lucky us!
