June 19, 2017 What’s goat’s milk got to do with Summer Solstice?

If goats had a word for delicious, it would have two meanings. The first would be: I like this. The second would be: This is what my body needs. For goats, they are the same thing.”
Dear Friends,
     Yes, I know.  These are not goats.  But they are our baby turkeys from a few years ago and it’s a cute photo.
     Thank you for the notes and comments this past week on the Elsa (goat) milk you bought from us for your pets.  Yes, it is sweet and delicious and we have more in the freezers.  One reason suggested is that there isn’t, nor has been, a male (stinky) goat ever here.   She is half Nubian and half Alpine, both heavy producers, but it was a huge surprise to us when she started producing small amounts a few years ago.    We even called the vet to come  check her out at first and he thought it was an infection.  But it turns out, that as female goats mature, so do their hormones, and hers kicked in to do what her genes said to do – produce milk!
     But this year!  Those pesky hormones kicked into high gear and poor Kendall, my husband, who takes care of them, is sometimes having to milk her twice a day.  Like he doesn’t have better things to do.  We’ve been advised to cut back her grains (higher in protein then alfalfa) to lessen the production but I’m betting on the turn of the season this week (Summer Solstice) and shorter days to turn the spigots down.
     I’m sure some of you have heard of making cosmetics and soaps from goat’s milk.  If some of you want to try your hand at it (easy), I’ll discount larger amounts for you.
     Here a link to good ideas:  Recipes for Goat’s Milk Cosmetics
      Elsa’s milk, is available with your delivery through the Green Store.
One of your ingredients this week might be the young fennel.
 This is a good one:      Yummy Fennel
     We still have wonderful honey available too:
                           Fresh Local Honey
 And much appreciation to the people that volunteer especially when they say it was their enrichment.  How nice.  Thank you.
    Happy cooking to all.

June 12, 2017 June Joy not Gloom

Urban conservationists may feel entitled to be unconcerned about food production because they are not farmers.  But they can’t be let off so easily, for they are all farming by proxy.
-Wendall Berry
Dear Friends,
    I hear the grumbling from people about the cloud cover and lack of sunlight but for us, it’s marvelous weather to work in.  Hot sun is not our friend when working.  One of the things I’ve been tackling, is dividing perennials (and doing search and destroy onlecherous noxious weeds) and among them are my purple bearded iris.  If anyone would like some, call or email me and I’ll put some into a separate paper bag to go along with your delivery.  If it doesn’t make it this week, it’ll be the week after.
   I’m sorry to say the one of my favorite growers and providers, has called it quits after 33 years and is selling his farm in central California where he grows garlic.  I bought an extra case of his incredible dried garlic that is indispensable in the kitchen.  It’s not cheap, we pay $12.50 per packet, but it’s so worth it in flavor and convenience and goes such a long way.  And no clingy damp garlic shells!
     A big thank you to everyone for not complaining about the summer squash every week coming your way.  I know it’s a challenge but the dang bragada bug cuts down on so many things we used to be able to grow this time of year.
    We’ll be happy to see the fall season and cooler temperatures.
    Happy cooking to all.

Ideas are easy. It’s the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.
– Sue Grafton
Dear Friends,
      Elsa, one of our goats, has decided that this season will be one of bounty for her milk and we have started freezing it in pint containers.  Now, it’s not legal to sell it for human use, although we have it on our cereal almost every morning (sweet and delicious), in cream soups, casseroles, baked goods and even an ingredient in facials! We can, however, offer it to you for your pets.  We freeze it the same day she’s milked and each baggie contains about 2 cups. Elsa will appreciate the support for her delicious and nutritious Mother’s Milk.  It’s available as an add on to your delivery through the Green Store.
    One of your ingredients this week, cauliflower, is a veggie that I’ve learned ‘stumps’ some for cooking.  It’s a member of the broccoli family that is high in fiber and nutrients including anti-carcinogenic properties.  It’s extremely versatile and very tasty.  We’ve tried many of the recipes on this site and hope you find one you’ll enjoy.
                           Three Cheers for Cauliflower
     We still have wonderful honey available too:
                           Fresh Local Honey
 And much appreciation to the people that volunteer especially when they say it was their enrichment.  How nice.  Thank you.
    Happy cooking to all.

May 29, 2017 Memorial Day – Gratitude for our freedoms

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
-Robert Louis Stevenson
Dear Friends,
      Summer is around the corner but our summer squash is going gang busters already.  One of our favorite ways to enjoy it is with this easy and fast method:
2 eggs
1/2 c milk
salt and pepper
1/4 c cornmeal
2/3 c whole wheat flour
sliced summer squash
coconut oil
Beat eggs, milk and seasonings together.  Heat oil in heavy skillet over medium hot heat. Dip squash slices in liquid and then cover both sides with flour mix.  Fry each side about 2 minutes, drain.  Serve hot.  Easy, fast and good.
     Fallbrook Honey’s producer, Charlene, brought us another fresh batch of their wonderful honey. We have limited supplies so order this delicious and nutritious treat from nature from our GreenStore here:
                           Fresh Local Honey
     And much appreciation to the people that volunteer especially when they say it was their enrichment.  How nice.
    Enjoy our spring weather and happy cooking to all.

Dear Friends,
     Are you composting?  I’m sure many of you are in some creative form or another and if you haven’t a little earthworm farm (if you want or are able) I mightily encourage it. Even if it’s a little one.  The whole process of carbon based material being transformed into other ingredients is amazing and educational.  They certainly are great representatives for one of the great processes of nature.  I’ll put together a little baggy for you and they love scraps from your deliveries.  And tissue paper even.  Here are easy instructions to get you started.  No matter how old you are.  It’s fun!
                      Let’s Science: Earthworming
     Charlene brought us another fresh batch of their wonderful Fall brook honey.  Understandably, they had to raise their prices in a long while a little so we’ll do a 2 for one on the Green Store to show our support for what they do for us.
     And much appreciation to the people that volunteer especially when they say it was their enrichment.  How nice.
    Enjoy our spring weather and happy cooking to all.

You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry, don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.
 Walter Hagen
Dear Friends,
     It was a busy week-end with the Saturday Mother’s Day Pick Your Own Bouquet visitors and Sunday with the Corgi Meet-up where we had about 25 happy (and tired) doggies enjoy their romp.  The farm is especially beautiful this year with the rain we had and the perennial flowers are going gang busters. So, we’re offering a discount on bouquets.  Why not make someone happy with a lovely bouquet of flowers?  Drop me an email or go to the Green Store and we’ll make up an extra one for you.
    Enjoy our spring weather and happy cooking to all.

May 1, 2017 HAPPY MAY 1st!

“At last came the golden month of the wild folk– honey-sweet May, when the birds come back, and the flowers come out, and the air is full of the sunrise scents and songs of the dawning year.”
Dear Friends,
There’s often squabbling in our gardens, rarely between humans but common among the birds, reptiles and insects.  This last week-end we had guests for a sunset dinner and the dissent among the humans had passionate bets placed on an entity swooping and hovering over plants by the dozens.  “They are baby hummingbirds..no, no, they are giant invading moths” and the debate raged on.   Having lived mostly outdoors for all these years among both friend and foe, I knew what they were however had never seen them in such numbers.  Finally, the ever present cell phones settled the issue amicably.  With our wonderful winter rains, we are seeing seasonal life forms in unusual numbers.  The ones in question are the white line sphinx moths (Hyles lineata), looking remarkably like baby hummingbirds.  If you have a garden or going for a walk about sunset, do look for these remarkable insects.  Their antics are entertaining, memorable and valuable as they pollinate all kinds of flowers as they feed on the nectar.  Hope you get to see them!
 Mother’s Day is around the corner and we have beautiful flowers for you.  We’re also planning a ‘pick your own bouquet for the Saturdaybefore.  We’ll send out an announcement for it.
    Enjoy our spring weather and happy cooking to all.

April 17, 2017 Flowers and more!

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
