It's fall on Nantucket and the island gardens and farms are at their peak. New England has a later growing season than we are accustomed to from our life on the West Coast. Now, rather than July and August, we have more tomatoes and other vegetables than we can handle. Our favorite place for fresh fruits and vegetables, other than our community garden plot, is Bartlett's Farm, Nantucket's oldest and largest family-owned farm. The Bartlett family has been farming the same land since arriving on Nantucket in the early 1800's. They're best known for their delicious tomatoes and sweet corn, but they have other interesting vegetables and fruits, such as the purple cauliflower that we spotted on a recent trip to Bartlett's during the fall Arts Festival when they featured a "Farm Art" exhibition with plein air works from local artists. Another interesting and unusual market find took place during a recent four-day trip to New York City with my friend Sunny, who was visiting us from California. At Columbus Circle's Whole Foods Market, we were surprised to see four pound ostrich eggs on display alongside the traditional chicken eggs for sale. Apparently one ostrich egg is equivalent to 24 regular sized chicken eggs.
