Dear Friends,
Late late for a very important date.
Apologies for the late items list. I blame the new computer. I have a remedy..I’d like to throw it through the window! Or maybe will just go pull weeds.
Enjoy your fresh fruits and veggies for the week.

Giving thanks

November 25, 2019
Volume 1,656
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
Dear Friends,
Thankfulness for me is the daily experience of working the farm and coaxing the land to provide food, foliage, fauna and clean air for us, the Seabreeze crew and our patrons. We all share I think, the goal of growing beneficial crops and doing our part to protect our world. Your support helps the Farm weather the storms. Thank you.
The photo is some of the lettuce we grow. It’s not from Salinas. Another sound reason I think for having local farms. It’s a shame about the recall. Everyone needs more vegetables in their diets, not to avoid them.
Friendly reminder – this week we’ll be packing on Tuesday so will be ready for Farm Pick-ups on Tues. after 1 pm or all day Wednesday. Wednesday deliveries will be the same and it’s the Thursday deliveries that will have to be on Tuesday.
Enjoy your fresh veggies for the week…and take a nice autumn walk when you can.

Love & Hate – Is That a Turnip You’re Holding?

November 18, 2019
Volume 1,656
Dear Friends,
Woe of the week. Now, I already have a love/hate relationship with technology as my associates know all too well. I mean, why else did I become a’farmer’ at 40 except to hopefully escape from the modern world and yet, here I am, tied to computers and ‘Droids and with no choice about the matter. The old office computer (over 10 yrs old?) inexplicably and most inconveniently, decided to bow out forever early Thursday morning. Any crisis I share about wild animals, invasive weeds, devouring insects, escalating costs of basic services –all pale to the daunting task of staring at screens and programs different from the old familiar ones (Windows 7) and relying on my already over tasked tech friends to drop their lives and obligations to get us running again. I’d much rather be digging a drainage ditch!. So heart felt gratitude to Donna, Rob and Michael for coming to the rescue and Kendall, my long enduring husband.
So let’s talk about something much more exciting (pun)..turnips! I know, they have a really bad rap, but honestly, these little beauties will (hopefully) change your minds. They don’t look anything like the big, tough and frankly nasty tasting things in the store. These white little gems are not strong in taste, with a mild flavor and are delicious either raw or lightly cooked (please don’t overcook–they’ll be mushy). The seeds are very expensive and worth every dime. Do so hope you enjoy them. It was quite chilly out when they were harvested, causing stiff and cold fingers so hope you like them.
The next week will be Thanksgiving so remember we’ll be packing on Tuesday morning, delivering Thursday people the same day and Wednesday people on schedule. Farm pick-ups may come Tuesday or Wednesday of that week. Good luck to all with the squeezed schedule and hope it won’t be too stressful. Still don’t understand why we can’t have these ‘get together holidays when daylight is longer!
Enjoy your fresh veggies for the week…and take a nice autumn walk when you can.

Like the aroma of vanilla?

November 11, 2019
Volume 1,655
The scarlet of maples can shake me like a cry
Of bugles going by.
And my lonely spirit thrills
To see the frosty aster like smoke upon the hills.
William B. Carman
Dear Friends,
We’re so pleased to have enough flat-topped asters this week for your bouquets and should have enough as well for our every-other-week recipients for the next. It’s taken about 10 years for them to get to the size they are now and I’d say it’s water well used in spite of the cost. I’m not sure who is happier, us humans that enjoy the vanilla scent wafting in the air or the masses of honey bees gorging on the fall bounty. If there’s even only one reason left for keeping farm land, it’s to provide habitat for the bees that are the basis of our food supply.

Falling for autumn flowers

November 4, 2019
Volume 1,654
It gives you a good feeling. Each year, you rediscover in a garden the magic of life. A flower arrives, and it is a miracle. The leaves fall in the autumn, and it looks fantastic. There is a tenderness about a garden, and you can’t help but be sensitive to that.
Hubert de Givenchy
Dear Friends,
Check out these brilliant bundles of Mexican sage and flat-topped fragrant asters that Marisol and I harvested as one of your types of flowers for the week! She and a blessed small group of other shareholders come on Saturday mornings to help with the harvesting. So grateful. Want to join us for a pleasant couple of hours on a Saturday morning outside and among the crops for the week? You are always welcome. Just let me know.
Someone asked me last week about Elsa, one of our goats. She’s such a character and this other photo is of a new friend she met this past week. She’s 15 yrs old now and as lovable as ever. She’d live in the house if we let her!
Enjoy your fresh veggies for the week…and take a nice autumn walk when you can.
