Cherokee Purple, Amish Paste, Mortgage Lifter, Brandywine. If you missed out on grabbing heirloom tomato plants last weekend, you have one more chance. Redland Organics will be at Ramble, Fairchild Garden’s annual festival of food and plants, on Friday Nov. 20, Saturday Nov. 21 and Sunday Nov. 22.

In addition to tomato plants, Farmer Margie will be selling smoked organic eggs (my favorite high protein snack), fresh organic eggs, herbs and various seasonal fruits. You will find it all at Slow Food Miami’s Greenmarket Tent. Don’t forget to try cas guava, the latest flavor of goat milk ice cream from Hani Khouri of Redland Mediterranean Organics. And, Martha Montes de Oca, of Sous Chef 2 Go, will be cooking up Hispanic dishes with an organic twist.

In addition, there will be several cooking demos. Hani will hold a goat cheese-making workshop on Sunday at 2pm. CSA member Hunter Reno and chef Adri Garcia will give their cooking demo, “What’s in Your Lunchbox?” on Sunday at 11 am. Saturday’s demos are at 11 am with Thi Squire and 2pm with chef Dawn Fine.

Admission is $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, $10 for children 6-17, and free for children 5 and under and members of the garden. Go to the web site to get a coupon for $5 off event admission.
