Friends, stop by Coastal Bend Health Foods in Rockport every day this week for beautiful heirloom produce freshly delivered from our farm.
This week, we are featuring rare heirloom squash that you won’t find anywhere else in South Texas. We have more than 100 varieties of vegetables and herbs now ripening in our gardens. These pictures show Kayla and Madeleine picking them for you!
We have some lovely French squash, called pattison. You can find strie mélange, panache blanc et vert, and marbre. You can also find the rare Italian ronde di nice. Look for striped green cushaw, which is a very old Native American variety, along with Caserta and other unique varieties.
You will also find butternut, yellow crookneck, striped zucchini, scallopini, and many other tasty squashes. There are freshly picked carrots, beets, collards, prima rosa chard, lettuce, Tuscan kale, nasturtium bouquets, and many other veggies.
We can’t wait for you to try these squash and let us know how you like flavor. The techniques we employ to grow the sweetest and most flavorful produce are really beginning to tell. Each squash has its own unique taste. We hope you love these wonderful squashes and other veggies as much as we do!
Stop by Kimmi’s store to try this produce. The prices are great and Kimmi will always greet you with a smile!
Thanks Justin and Kayla. We’ll do a little shopping in the next couple of days. The produce looks beautiful. Jim

The star of these photos has absolutely nothing to do with the squash, though the squash looks delightful. Madeleine is the star, along with her Mom–
Absolutely the nicest vegtables I’ve ever seen! I would love to have a pot of those carrots steaming on the stove while hugging baby Madi.
Oh Justin! Those are absolutely gorgeous photos! Thank you! That Madeleine is adorable! We had a great lunch at a cute and fresh bistro called Madeleine’s in New Orleans Monday, because my Texas friend, Candy had been to one in Austin, so there may be one close to you guys! http://www.lamadeleine.com I always love getting your posts! Looks like you’re having a great Spring! We’re in Slidell, Louisiana, but getting this boat ready to take back to the Bahamas! We bought this trawler here last August, but still have Flying Dogs in Georgetown and go back and forth! We still have Libby and this is a great marina next to woods! All the best!

Does the lemon squash truly have a lemon flavor? If it does, I might come to Rockport for grocery shopping!
