J and I lived in Portland for a couple of years before moving to Seattle. It was the Portland Farmers Market in 2005 where I tasted my first Pimiento de Padron. Since then more people have caught on to these little Spanish beauties. Though Whole Foods Market carried them for a limited time last summer, I’d rather get them straight off the farm if possible. Sol to Seed Farm sells them in season at their U-District Farmers Market table on Saturdays, but if you go there, expect to stand in line. The market opens at 9:00 a.m. Get there early!
I am so excited about this week’s box. Not only did it include Padron peppers, but more tomatoes, sweet peppers, and tender salad mix I eat every day.
This weeks box includes:
Dragon’s Tongue Bean
Last October I planted garlic for the first time at this house. It’s an organic hard neck Killarney Red. Today I pulled up the last of the garlic and I’m looking forward to using a clove or two tonight. Though…I haven’t decided what’s for dinner…maybe peperonata.
