Though the calendar may say September, the recent warm weather has the gardens thinking it’s still high summer as they continue to produce favorites like heirloom tomatoes, grilling peppers and zucchini, as well as crisp salad greens, edible flowers and more. Break out the grill for one last cookout this week with a lineup starring our house-blend dry grill rub and a mixed vegetable frittata to serve alongside—uncork a bottle of Rosé wine, slice up some Pomodoro bread and toast to lingering summer.
Here’s what you’ll find in your box this week:
Crafted in the farmhouse kitchen with eggs from our flock of heritage-breed hens, plus sweet peppers, onions, cherry tomatoes, fresh herbs and silky fromage blanc, this light and lovely frittata is perfect for an easy weeknight feast. Simply reheat in a 350° oven for about 20-25 minutes or until warmed through, then cut it into generous wedges and serve alongside a grilled entrée.
House-Blend Dry Rub for Grilling
Made with a mixture of savory spices including garlic, thyme and smoked sea salt, our house-blend is excellent rubbed on chicken, beef, fish and even seasonal vegetables—think peppers, onions or zucchini!
Flecked with flavorful sun-dried tomatoes and herbs, plus a hint of sea salt, this savory loaf is baked just for us by our favorite bakery in Snohomish.
Schäfer Organic Dry Rosé 2016
Made from this German winery’s estate-grown organic Pinot Noir grapes, this delicate and dry Rosé features aromas and flavors of wild strawberries, peach and pear backed by crisp, refreshing acidity.
Farm Fresh Eggs
Our small flock of heritage breed laying hens gives us fresh eggs in beautiful shades of brown and green. With shorter days that signal the coming of fall, the girls are up with the sun to roam the outdoors where they still enjoy the warm afternoons.
Our housemade jam is crafted from gorgeous orchard plums lovingly handpicked off the tree each morning during the summer harvest. To preserve the wonderful fresh flavor and color, we make this ‘uncooked jam’ with plums, organic cane sugar and pectin.
Ripe Summer Fruit
Orange-fleshed cantaloupe and Donut peaches.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables
This week’s produce selection also includes sweet yellow onions, red beets, green beans, Costa Romanesco zucchini, heirloom tomatoes, and sweet grilling peppers.
Seasonal Organic Greens
Summer salad mix and Truchas mini red Romaine lettuce.
Fresh Garden Herbs

Vivid blossoms to add colorful appeal to your salads this week!
