For late July – cucumbers are happening! Juicy, mild and thin-skinned
Persian cukes are coming in strong as well as lemon cukes and Armenian;
some long Japanese and Serpent too. Red tomatoes are ripening and many
other types /colors on the plants. Surprisingly, a few melons are coming
in! There are several types of beautiful eggplant and the on-going
abundance of zucchini and pattypans, both in 3 colors. Our wonderful old
Red Gravenstein apple tree is ripe and there is plenty of basil, green
onions, kale and limited quantities of carrots, beets, strawberries and
fresh cut flowers. We’ll start digging potatoes for Aug. 1.
Hope to see you soon! Stay well,

Farm History:
Chiatri de Laguna, formerly Chiatri USA and Grossi Egg Ranch, was founded in the mid 1940’s by Dino & Thelma Grossi, who grew up in this neighborhood. They built an egg ranch, raised most of their own food and a family. They were Farm Trails members and sold eggs and produce on site for many years. Our goal is to honor this legacy by creating a place of beauty and abundance, to serve the community and be a “hamlet” as is Chiatri in Italy. Starting July 11: Farmstand open on Saturdays 10 am to 2 pm, or by appointment.
