Chino Farms quick report

MVNYC | Jul 5, 2006 10:10 PM

Went to Chino Farms on Sunday and came back with some great stuff.

Strawberries are famous here, and they are very sweet right now.
Raspberries-possibly the best i have had in my life
Boysenberries-see raspberries
Multi coloured corn-like the strawberries, perfect summer food and very sweet. Don't miss out on the corn.
Beets- i got an oblong shaped bunch with very dark almost black beets. These were very sweet, earthy and delicious(i roasted in the oven).
Yellow watermelon-This too was very sweet, and was a nice change of pace. We used it to make watermelon cups which we filled with berries and watermelon salsa.
Variety of baby squash-I think these were at theie peak a few weeks ago yet were still very good.
Ronde de Nice squash-I had never had this variety before. It's been good to eat raw as a snack over the past few days.
Lettuce-I dont know what kind i got, but i asked the nice older lady to give me what she eats. The two heads were both good, one being slighlty herbal.
Mixed small tomatoes-FANTASTIC. Some of the best i have had, yellow, red, purple, orange all good. These are everything a tomato should be.

This is why i love summer. If you live in the San Diego area or are visiting, do not hesitate to give this farm a try ASAP. This place makes eating healthy easy.
