March 13, 2017 Family Farms Feed People!

A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handy man with a sense of humus.
Dear Friends,
     It seriously helps to have at least an occasional sense of humor around here.   So, so far it’s been a great year for rain and beautiful dramatic/thrilling storms.  Along with that, there were new consequences, one after the other. The farm is very Wabi Sabi. Things change form all the time.  What’s most important is the health of the earth because that is what is giving us our food.  I love our earthworms and everything else that goes on in there that we can’t even see.
     Warm regards to all and enjoy your good food.
     We’ve a fresh batch of our incredible local honey.  Be sure to restock or try this favorite of ours.  Local honey is touted for warding off colds and buffering against allergies and it’s just plain good.
     We also have a newly roasted batch of organic and shade grown coffee in the Green Store.   Yum.
     Stephenie

February 27, 2017 Living with animals

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
-Mahatma Gandhi
Dear Friends,
     I usually know when there’s a new book, movie or news story about ‘factory’ farming animals because I’ll get phone calls or emails from people obviously very upset that have looked up San Diego farms and found our contact information.   They insist on knowing how we care for, usually our chickens, our animals and didn’t really read our website. I’ll listen, agree and assure them them of the quality of their care..  Here is a note from a San Diegan from last week that I most appreciated for taking her time to write:
     “I just watched  a segment on the news about “cage free” eggs. I have known the horrors of the so-called “cage free” farms. The end of the segment mentioned that San Diego has chicken farms and so I went online and found your website. I read about your eggs and chickens, and I felt such happiness in my heart that I  actually started to cry. Thank you for the care you give your chickens and allowing them to live their full lives out. I am vegan, but my family is not, so I do still buy eggs for them.  I again thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
With respect and gratitude, M. D.
     Rewards for work aren’t always about money.  Thank you M.D.
     The photo is of Elsa and Beatrice, going for a walk on the trail with us.
     We’ve a fresh batch of our incredible local honey this morning.  Be sure to restock or try this favorite of ours.  Local honey is touted for warding off colds and buffering against allergies and it’s just plain good.
  Happy cooking and enjoy these last two days of February in San Diego.

February 20, 2017 Wild and wonderful

Dear Friends,
     Another wonderful rainstorm over the weekend giving us about an inch or so of water and lots of excitement.   We’re surrounded now by verdant green in the growing grounds as well as the hills around. It’s lovely and the beginning of our spring flower season.  So much to look forward to.
      This coming Friday is designated CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Day 2017 and we’re asking you help share the importance of community farms to your friends, family and associates.  The link is:
                     National CSA Day February 24, 2017
     Now on to enjoying our CSA items for the week.
    We’re so pleased with our crop of Nordic spinach this round.  Although it might need an extra rinsing, it’s sweet flavor and versatility more than makes up for it.  Try in sandwiches, salads or lightly stir-fried.
     Asparagus…what fans we are.  It’s one of the first spring crops thrusting boldly straight from the leafless roots in the ground full of life and vigor.  Very nutritious and versatile we hope you enjoy. It’s delicious either baked or steamed.  Here are some ideas:
                                         25 Asparagus recipes
     We’ve a fresh batch of our incredible local honey this morning.  Be sure to restock or try this favorite of ours.  Local honey is touted for warding off colds and buffering against allergies and it’s just plain good.
  Happy cooking and enjoy February in San Diego.

February 13, 2017 It’s all about good food

It is thus with farming: if you do one thing late, you will be late in all your work.

-Cato the Elder

Dear Friends,
     Looks like we’re going to have idyllic weather for the next few days and then more moisture moving in until early next week. Although rain wreaks havoc with our necessary field work, it’s all much appreciated.
     One of the dishes I intend to make this week is Broccoli Soup.  It’s easy as can be, basically sauteing onions and carrots in butter (I love clarified) with seasonings, add broth and broccoli pieces and simmer until tender (just a few minutes). Grit your teeth and indulge in some good half and half cream to add.  Use a blender wand (or blender) to break up into consistency you like and serve.  Croutons and cheddar cheese makes it even more inviting.  Same technique can be used with the asparagus or the gai-lon (reserve a few of the flowers to sprinkle raw on top).
    We like to make our own pizzas and think I’ll use the eggplant (sauteed in olive oil) as one of the toppings.  These two dishes and a hearty salad of mixed greens, spinach and good lettuce will make our week easier and full of good nutrition.
     Happy cooking and enjoy February in San Diego.
     Stephenie

February 6, 2017 Farming On!

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.
– Dolly Parton
Dear Friends,
     How kind and supportive so many of you have been following our farm storm damage.  Our gratitude for your caring.
     Saturday last, Andrew McCraken’s full crew of men and equipment managed to ‘get up ‘ our bluff driveway with huge trucks, chippers, grinders, cranes, and chain saws.  The vast majority of the old Grand Dame (the 40 year old poplar that toppled in the storms two weeks ago) is now either removed or stacked for future firewood. The clean up and recovery will continue for a while and it’s unfortunate however we will not be giving tours for the near future. Will keep you posted.
     It’s been an excellent and surprisingly long berry season and because they have been so good (and nutritious) we are still including them in our weekly items.  I’ll assume you’re enjoying them unless hear otherwise.
    Broccolini is one of our meal favorites and it’s so easy to cook and enjoy.  Here is one of my oft used methods and it’s quick!
                                  Broccolini in 5
     Our ‘Every Bean Counts’ organic coffee, local honey and ‘raised right’ eggs are easy and convenient to add to your delivery.  Log on to your account and click on Green Store.  They will be at your door in no time at all!
     Happy cooking,
Stephenie

January 30, 2017 Blessings and Opportunities

 Wabi-sabi nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.”
– Richard Powell
 

20170121_092924 SDG&E leaning pole

20170121_095711 SDG&E crew

Dear Friends,
     We’ve all had that moment(s) in time when with the blink of an eye, life changes.  Last Friday the 20th, about 1:45pm, Kendall and I were discussing the potential gravity of two more impending rain storms to San Diego that we feared would make harvesting impossible and grappling with the hard decision to cancel all deliveries for the next week.  Only had to do that one other time when fires were raging around us and we had to evacuate. Just about then, tremendous wrenching and crashing sounds jolted the house. Rushing to the window, we saw instantly the damage – the downed live electric wires, the uprooted tree (100 ft tall?) and the tilted power pole.
    The fire department arrived in about 10 minutes followed by police representatives and then AT&T analysis representatives. What remarkable, trained, polite and hard working men have been here all week. My gratitude and respect will always be there for them and too for you, our shareholders that understood we would be a day behind in deliveries and many of you didn’t receive flowers.  My sincere thank you to Donna for all of her work keeping us going while we were without phones, water, electricity or internet.  And to Andres and Raul who harvested in the cold rain and our drivers Jim and Doug that pulled out Thursday morning not knowing how severe the storm would be that day.  Thank you to all of you.
     Well, our field of alstroemerias (Peruvian lilies) was pretty much destroyed.  The majority of the tree is still in the field.  We’re waiting for a tree service to have an opening for continuing to cut and then there will be the big clean-up.  Hopefully their perennial roots will survive and replacement growth will occur.  Our farm insurance policy doesn’t cover the damage so we’ll have to figure something else out.
     All in all, change happens and challenges bring opportunities.
     We’ll be back to our regular schedule this week, fitting in debris removal and fighting back the aggressive weeds from the rains.  I never want to hear the word ‘drought’ again!
     In appreciation,
     Stephenie

January 23, 2017 It’s all about attitude!

Life is 10% what happens to you
and 90% how you react to it…
Charles R. Swindoll
Dear Friends,
     Donna here, filling in for Stephenie because at this moment, Seabreeze is without electricity, telephone & internet service and running water.  The large Poplar tree has fallen and taken down electric and phone lines with it.
WATERCOLOUR friends:
     As the latest storm has washed out the access road and damaged the art studio cover, there will be no watercolour class this week.
 THIS WEEK’S DELIVERIES:
    For our stakeholders with deliveries scheduled this week only, regular Wednesday deliveries will arrive on Thursday and Thursdaydeliveries on Friday and sadly, as the tree has flattened a large flower field, we will have no flowers.  We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience and hope to be back to normal next week, except, perhaps, for the flowers.
     I chose the quote because it made me think of Stephenie.  She is a shining example of one who faces challenges with true grace and dignity and sees adversity as an adventure.  I am grateful to call her my friend and can only hope that a little of her spirit rubs off on me.
     We have freshly roasted coffee beans and yummy honey available on the Green Store.  All add on orders are most appreciated.
    Electricity, phone and internet should be back on by Thursday, so call or email Stephenie if you need cooking tips.  She’s always happy to oblige.

January 16, 2017 Drought over?

Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one’s voice.
-Joseph B. Wirthli
Dear Friends,
     What a blessing these rains have been.  Looks like we might have more coming our way this week.  Hum, any chance water department might lower our rates?  Humor for the day.
     Here’s a quick, easy, healthy recipe for strawberries:
                   Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Bars

The easiest, best strawberry oatmeal bars with butter crumb topping. One bowl, simple ingredients, and 100% whole grain-perfect for a snack or dessert!
Yield: 1 8×8 inch pan (16 small or 9 large)
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes (plus cool time)

Ingredients:

For the Strawberry Bars:

  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (gluten free if needed)
  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour (or substitute all purpose flour or 1:1 baking flour to make gluten free)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (or substitute melted coconut oil to make vegan/dairy-free)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1/2 small lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
  • 2 cups, small-diced strawberries (10 ounces)

For the Vanilla Glaze (optional but delicious, especially if you prefer a sweeter bar):

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk (any kind you like)

Directions:

  1. Place a rack in the center of your oven and heat to 375 degrees F. Line an 8-by-8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that the paper overhangs two sides like “handles.”
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, 3/4 cup flour, brown sugar, ginger, and salt. Pour in the melted butter and stir until it forms clumps and the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumble mixture, then press the rest into an even layer in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Scatter half of the strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle the cornstarch evenly over the top, then sprinkle on the lemon juice, and 1/2 tablespoon of the granulated sugar. Scatter on the remaining berries, then the remaining 1/2 tablespoon sugar. Sprinkle the reserved crumbs evenly over the top. You will have some fruit showing through.
  4. Bake the bars for 35 to 40 minutes, until the fruit is bubbly and the crumb topping smells toasty and looks golden. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely (you can speed this process along in the refrigerator).
  5. While the bars cool, prepare the glaze: in a medium bowl, briskly whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth. Feel free to add more milk if a thinner consistency is desired. Using the parchment paper handles, lift the bars from the pan. Drizzle with glaze, slice, and serve.
     We have freshly roasted coffee and yummy honey available on the Green Store.  All add on orders are most appreciated.
    Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.

Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste.
-William Shakespeare
Dear Friends,
  What a beautiful Sunday we had in San Diego! Today’s going to be quite a challenge however as we will be harvesting in the rain.  As we start our 29th year of growing, the years roll through my mind filled with so many wonderful images..gorgeous vegetables and flowers, happy children holding fresh eggs, frolicking goats and horses, luncheons, weddings, concerts, and classes  galore.  We certainly like to think we’ve contributed to the health and well-being of our wonderful shareholders.
     We have freshly roasted coffee and yummy honey available on the Green Store.  All add on orders are most appreciated.
    Call or email me if you need cooking tips.  Happy to oblige.
