News is the website of Fields Farm in Bend Oregon. (Dale Friedkin) PHP Stock Up Submitted by Debbie, October 3, 2015<br /><br /> <p>Hi Folks,</p><br /> <p>Fall is here and a great time to stock up the pantry for winter. We have 10 lb flats of delicious roma type tomatoes for $25. &nbsp;My great discovery this year has been to roast tomatoes, onions, garlic, green peppers and basil in the sun oven until a thick paste consistency. It makes lovely bruchetta or whir it in the blender for an easy marinara sauce. Large onions are available for $1 a piece or a 20lb bag for $15. We have Georgian Crystal and Chesnock Red garlic as well as green and purple bell peppers at the farmstand also. Call us if you want any of these in larger quantity.</p>tags:news Onions!!
