Los Olivos

My favorite field at Tutti Frutti is located in Los Olivos, behind the large tomato and pepper field.  Chris leases this plot of land from a couple of active ninety-something-year-old sisters, each a testament to the organic lifestyle.  This field is much warmer than the fields found on Santa Rosa road, and has a different type of soil.

This Los Olivos dirt is dry, light, and full of tiny pebbles.  Because of the pebbles and the high organic matter levels, the soil doesn’t clump up, and so the soil both aerates well and drains well.  Here Chris grows vegetables intended primarily for the farmer’s markets, and there is a smaller quantity of a greater variety of vegetables being grown.

Here we can see broccoli and the various kales being grown, as well as the tops of some creamy red potatoes. I am eager to taste the corn, though that won’t be for a while.  It does seem to be growing quite well, up to the spleen by June fourteen.

If you attend any of the farmer’s markets Tutti Frutti Farms participates in, be sure to try the red potatoes and the sweet onions grown in this field, they’re quite delectable.
