May 21, 2018 Heaven Sent

I like the muted sounds, the shroud of grey, and the silence that comes with fog.

May 14, 2018 Ooops!

The earth is rocky and full of roots; it’s clay, and it seems doomed and polluted, but you dig little holes for the ugly shriveled bulbs, throw in a handful of poppy seeds, and cover it all over, and you know you’ll never see it again – it’s death and clay and shrivel, and your hands are nicked from the rocks, your nails black with soil.
Anne Lamott
Dear Friends,
     Here it is after 10am, already cutting flowers and harvesting lettuce, and, opps!, forgot to post your ingredients for the week.
     This lovely cool weather is perfect for working – back at it!
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.
     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

May 7, 2018 Mother’s Day Bouquets

May 7, 2018
Democracy is fine in politics.  It should stay there, and we need more of it.  But its political virtue is no reason to practice it in the garden.
-Allen Lacy
Dear Friends,
  We have absolutely gorgeous spring flowers that would love to be a Mother’s Day bouquet gift for the special women in your lives.  Most commercial flowers are grown in South America where chemical/pesticide use is rampant and working conditions miserable.  Our flowers are lovingly tended and grown right here on our farm providing not only their beauty but habitat and food for countless birds, insects and wildlife.  Many old fashioned English cottage style varieties are included that charm as well as share their natural scents.
     Our extra special Mother’s Day bouquets may be delivered along with your weekly share, picked up at the farm on Saturday or you may come and pick the bouquet yourselves this Saturday from 9:30 to 11:30.  Please call or email me if you’d like to come.  The farm is lovely this time of year.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.
     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

April 30, 2018 We’ve Lost One More

If you want to gather honey, don’t kick over the beehive.
– Dale Carnegie
Dear Friends,
     It saddens me to tell you the wonderful couple that kept bees and provided to us their marvelous local honey have sold their property and their era of honey production is over.  Except for our ‘greens’ of course, honey is one of nature’s most valuable food sources for a variety of reasons.  Everyone knows that ‘farming’ isn’t easy and generally speaking, I hear in discussions, ‘oh, someone else will do it’ but that’s just not true.  Young people haven’t the land or skills to take up food production, although goodness knows there’s lots of them that would like to from the calls and emails I receive, but that’s just not realistic considering the odds and investment.  They have the passion and the energy but not the resources.  I don’t know, I just  believe so fervently that local production of food is so important for so many reasons.  Think I’ll go work off my frustration by digging a ditch or something this morning!
     Ok, for you that might be overwhelmed by the bunches of ‘green things’ this week, heads up because one in particular might be strange to you.  It’s the purple/green one with large leaves.  If we were grazing and nibbling through the gardens, I’d break off a piece and have you try.  Raw, it has multiple layers of taste, from slightly horseradish-like to more subtle undertones.  Best cooking methods for a wonderful cooked ‘green’ (we love ours served over mashed potatoes) are simple:  Here’s one I like:
                                                     Simply Cooked Mustard Greens
     Your other greens are arugula, always delicious in salads or sandwiches and a bunch of cilantro.  Yum.  GO GREEN!
     Saturday, from 9:30 to 11:30 we had a terrific group of volunteers helping to harvest flowers.  It was a lovely day and we got lots done!  Thank you one and all.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.
     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

April 9, 2018 It’s Them or Us!

“Spring is here, and sprouting seeds are not the only living things stirring the warm, moist soil of California gardens.  The gophers are stirring down there, too.” 
–  Maria Gaura     

 
Gopher
Gopher
Dear Friends,
     Spring time in San Diego brings many marvelous developments in the gardens but the one that always has us reeling is the explosion of gophers merrily scraping their maze of tunnels under our crops.  Of course, with so much of our neighborhood overlaid with houses, the natural inhabitants look for the safest and most bountiful food supply and guess where that is?  The farm of course. The one thing that has me a little concerned this season though, is the bees.  Usually they are swarming all over our flowers (which is why it’s important we grow them) and we’re just not seeing them (the bumblebees that used to be prolific are now few and far between) in their ‘normal’ numbers.  It’s quite sad when I think back in years of the myriad of species that were here when I started…they’re long gone.  Think I’ll go smell the lilies and try not to think about it.
     If anyone knows how we can post our videos and not have them continue into others, we’d be most appreciative.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.
     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

April 2, 2018 Double the Bounty

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want-oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” 

 Mark Twain

Dear Friends,
      It really does pay off to plant in the Fall.  The farm is bursting with growing crops and gorgeous flowers..and they decided to all come at once!  This week you’ll receive one less vegetable and a double bouquet of flowers and lettuce.
     Appreciation from our 4 military families that were able to receive food donations last week from shareholders that went on vacation.  Thank you one and all.

     We have a steady count right now of about 8 families a week receiving our good food and I think we can do so much better.  There are a number of families on a ‘wait and see’ list.  You can sponsor a family either through the Hungry Heroes selection in our Green Store or through www.produce4patriots.com (started by one of our very own shareholders) or just call or email me with what you’d like to do.

 Here’s to good food, friends and families.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.
     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

March 26, 2018 Celebrating Spring and Good Food

Unless a tree has borne blossoms in spring, you will vainly look for fruit on it in autumn. Walter Scott
Dear Friends,
     A hearty ‘Thank You’ to our group of CSA shareholders coming on Saturday’s to help out.  We pulled weeds (of course), harvested carrots, made marvelous distilled scented waters for refreshing facial sprays, spread thick straw for moisture retention, seeded new spring flowers and a myriad of other chores.  Good companions!
     We have a steady count right now of about 8 families a week receiving our good food and I think we can do so much better.  There are a number of families on a ‘wait and see’ list.  You can sponsor a family either through the Hungry Heroes selection in our Green Store or through www.produce4patriots.com (started by one of our very own shareholders) or just call or email me with what you’d like to do.

 Here’s to good food, friends and families.

March 19, 2018 Doing our part

March 19, 2018
I am grateful for all the military families that I’ve met. I wanted to spread hope and cheer to all; little did I know that they would be the ones to change my life the way they have!

Dear Friends,
     This handsome threesome is of one our Marine military families that will be helping to assign and distribute our farm goods that are so gratefully accepted.  I hear about how some of our ‘old-fashioned’ flowers and vegetables remind them of home and there’s almost always a story about how grandparents had a farm.  Inevitably, they wish it was still in the family.  They’d love to be able to go back and raise their children there.
     We have a steady count right now of about 8 families a week and I think we can do so much better.  There are a number of families on a ‘wait and see’ list.  You can sponsor a family either through the Hungry Heroes selection in our Green Store or through www.produce4patriots.com (started by one of our very own shareholders) or just call or email me with what you’d like to do.

 Here’s to good food, friends and families.

     May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.
