“A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved.
He inspires the power and energy to get it done.”

– Ralph Lauren
Dear Friends,
     I have the privilege of being able to work with very special people and that includes our shareholders.  I think we share a vision.  This is a note that came to me from a committed woman, T. B., and I thought I’d pass it along to you (with her permission)
I was very inspired on the day I visited your farm. Very is an understatement – and I wanted to take the time to craft a response that did the visit justice.  It was actually a defining moment for me personally and also for how I go about forming the Girl Scout Troops in Carmel Valley.  I am new to the Carmel Valley community and had been mainly exposed to all the new development.  I had been searching for a meeting location and activity to ground the Girl Scout experience in your community – to find a way for girls to develop grit and character and that led me to enquiring about your farm.

There were some things you said to me that were incredibly important and will now influence my work for Girl Scouts in your area.  I really appreciated when you helped me focus on listening and absorbing the environment, the levels of biodiversity and life, and treasured the idea that your farm is not a boutique experience.  It is life… After meeting you I realized I just how incredibly special Seabreeze is and that it deserves reverence and deep respect for the work there – so much so that I too want to protect it and would not want to set up anything there that would  be disrupting or cause any type of distress whatsoever.

The original idea I had does no longer apply I think – as I believe it might be more of a burden than a help to you.  I had originally been thinking of two days of service, where girls would come and do raking, weeding or other jobs like this.  If this were to occur – I think it would be appropriate for the girls to undergo pre-training so as to seamlessly fit in to your system there.  As I am not a Troop Leader myself, I would not be able to guarantee that the girls would get this kind of training.  The girls I work with are brand new to Girl Scouts.

I loved how you asked me to come up with the idea for your farm and I think the best way for new girls to step into community service would be to make something for you that would be delivered to you.  I liked the idea you had said about bird feeder sheets filled with bird seed to hang – but I knew I also had to come up with a good idea on my own as well.  I am still thinking about it!!

I hope this email does not come off as sappy or ungenuine – I am very very inspired by you.  The Girl Scout experience was started by a woman just like you – her name is Juliette Gordon Low and she had a vision and determination to make something as cool as Girl Scouts a reality.  You have done the same with your farm.  My time with you reminded me of the truest values and beliefs in Girl Scouts and I want to thank you. I wish I could convey how important the time you gave to me that day was and how you pivoted a very important aspect of community building in Carmel Valley back to where It really needed to be in just a matter of minutes through simply meeting you.  My approach will be much deeper.

Now – I have a special challenge in my heart to do justice to your inspiration.  I will email when I have something that is the right fit for such a special place and inspiring person.  In the meantime, please know that the way I speak to and interact with new Girl Scout Troops that I form in Carmel Valley is inspired by you.

      Let’s keep this farm growing and feeding people.  It takes a community.
     Happy cooking.

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
– Liberty Hyde Bailey
Dear Friends,
     Some people take photos mostly of other people.  I take photos of the plants we tend and the food we make.  It’s gratifying to have the complete circle.
     With August upon us, we’re busy planning and seeding our fall crops for the cooler temperatures and shorter days.  I happen to adore the sweet Asian turnips and crispy kohlrabi.  Shall we plant them for you this year?
      We encourage you to try our sweet goat’s milk for your ‘pet food’ or cheese making or easy cosmetics.  Elsa, our goat, just keeps producing more and more and it’s such a shame for something so good to not be used.
     We’ve had one more person signup to assist the military families with produce.  It’s so appreciated and we’re hoping many more support this program.
      Let’s keep this farm growing and feeding people.  It takes a community.

July 24, 2017 Good Morning

Dear Friends,
     Over the last two weeks we’ve received 60 bales of aged straw and we’re covering as much ground as we can with it.  Good growing soil is teeming with life forms that all have appetites!  So we’re triple time busy and know the results will be worth it!.
     Pleasant week to all.

“The heaven of a grasshopper is the wheat field; the heaven of man is the same place, the very earth itself where we get our food and build our happiness!”   – Mehmet Marat Ildan
Dear Friends,
     After all these years, you’d think I’d pre-anticipate these critters that descend to add to the things that want to devour our labor.  I was hard pressed to find a positive quote for the week.
   It’s almost daylight and must prepare for another busy week and the curves that come along.
     Anyone feel like 45 min to an hour weeding simple weeds?  It’s quite relaxing to be able to focus on just one task.  I like being able to see the results, no matter the area.  It’s popping up in the straw and has got to go!
     Pleasant week to all.

July 10, 2017 Good Food is for the Moment

I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman’s cares.
Dear Friends,
     Sometimes it’s good to go back through photos especially if you’re being tested like we are with this heat spell.  Sure makes getting things covered harder
     But good food is for the moment, so I hope you all make something for your pallet to linger over and enjoy.  And share!

July 3, 2017 Let Freedom Ring

“A farm includes the passion of the farmer’s heart, the interest of the farm’s customers, the biological activity in the soil, the pleasantness of the air about the farm — it’s everything touching, emanating from, and supplying that piece of landscape. A farm is virtually a living organism. The tragedy of our time is that cultural philosophies and market realities are squeezing life’s vitality out of most farms. And that is why the average farmer is now 60 years old. Serfdom just doesn’t attract the best and brightest.”
Joel Salatin
Dear Friends,
     It was with great sadness we read about the closing of Suzie’s Farm this last week. Their last public farm visit was yesterday.   I know first hand of the demands, the joys and the sorrow of running a family farm. Every time a farm closes in San Diego, it is a loss that cannot be reclaimed.  The escalating expenses, the physical work, public expectations and the never ending chores and repairs somehow are off-set by the satisfaction of knowing we’re providing not only good product, nature habitat and animal husbandry but providing a psychological boost to people thinking there are still real farms and people not giving in to our present day food systems.  We at Seabreeze are no different than the remaining family farms in San Diego county.  We all share the same challenges that can only be met with the support of our community and that translates into customers.  To our existing loyal CSA shareholders, we thank you.  To those that know of us, let me reach out to you and although cooking and eating at home may not be within the ability of your life style, there are ways you can help.  Number one is to purchase a share that we then give to our local military families in need.  It’s not a huge expense to some and to the recipients, it’s priceless.  We currently have under 10 people donating to this cause and the need is great.  Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions about this service or if you’re able to participate.  Let’s all step up to keeping our farms and appreciation of our service people, especially with tomorrow being the 4th of July.  Let’s celebrate together knowing we have strong protective military forces and hopefully thriving and productive farms for our community.
  Most humbly,
Stephenie

June 26, 2017 Military Families and Fourth of July

As we celebrate our nation’s freedom, we honor the courageous men and women dedicated to preserving it.
-Unknown
Dear Friends,
     We here in San Diego are fortunate with our place on this planet and for the men and women in uniform that serve and live here.  Their families are included in their service and duties.  Several years ago it came to our attention that especially the young families could use ingredients and instruction for keeping them well fed with fresh and nutritious foods and sometimes the expense left them without good choices.  That’s when we asked that if you could, when on vacation, to donate your CSA share to them.  Many of you have been quite generous, and several have on-going donations.  We all thank you.  And, the need is still here. I received these two emails just last week and am asking those of you that can, to pickup a share or two of produce for them that will be most appreciated.  Angel is the young military wife and mother of two that is distributing to families that can use it. Here are their notes:
‘Angel B. recently told me about your hungry heroes program. As a military wife who works full time so we can afford to eat healthier, it would be such an amazing blessing to be considered for becoming a member of this program. We live up in San Onofre housing (near San Clemente) and currently around half of my income goes to feeding our household. I would be willing to help with delivering produce if it is on a weekend, as I work weekdays and it’s quite a trek down to your farm from our house.
I can’t tell you how wonderful this program idea is. I don’t attend many of the food giveaways because most of the food donated is processed, and/or expired, and most of the giveaways are at set times on weekday mornings. You are doing a truly wonderful thing.
Many Thanks,
E. B.’
And,:

‘My name is Kinsey and I was given your email from Angel. I have reserved a donation bag for next week and hopefully would love to become a part of your program in the future! I’ve seen the beautiful produce that Angel has taken pictures of and my family and I would be extremely grateful! Thank you for what you are doing for the Military, it is a extremely kind! ‘
Last week we had 7 donations.  Let’s make it 20 real soon and more from there!  Military Family Donation
     We all have felt bad if we aren’t able to use all our veggies in the frig and here’s somewhat of a ‘catch-all’ recipe I find useful for busy days.  All of these ingredients can be substituted by items you have on hand:
Mustard Butter Pasta with Broccoli
    from The Tassajara Recipe Book
“This has become our standard summertime pasta, with a flavor as bright as the colors.  The pasta and vegetables cook together before being tossed in the mustard butter.  The recipe is adaptable to a wide range of vegetables:
A little edited:
1/2 c butter or ghee (may be part olive oil)
2-4 T Dijon mustard or your favorite
2 cloves garlic
2 T parsley, well minced
2 T chives, finely sliced, or green onion, sliced and minced
salt and pepper
1 T oil
2 Cups broccoli, cut into small flowerets (see below for variations)
3/4 lb pasta, fettucine or linguine
Set out the butter early to soften up.  When it’s soft, blend in the mustard. Add the parsley, chives, a little ground pepper and continue mixing for a short while to release their flavors.
Use a large pot to boil a generous amount of water with a teaspoon of salt.
Fan the pasta into the boiling water.  If you are using fresh pasta, add the broccoli at the same time.  When using dried pasta, add the broccoli (and/or alternatives) the last few of minutes cooking.
As soon as they are done, scoop out the pasta and the vegetable with an oval strainer.  Put the pasta and broccoli in skillet, allowing a little water to dribble in.
Add the prepared butter, and over moderate heat, toss the pasta with tongs until is evenly coated.  Keep the heat low enough that the butter does not bubble or fry- that will change the flavor.
Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary. ‘
Substitutes or additions may be cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, or peas to name a few.
      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.  Still sweet and delicious as ‘Pet Food’.
     Here a link to good ideas:  Recipes for Goat’s Milk Cosmetics
      Elsa’s milk, is available with your delivery through the Green Store.
     We still have wonderful honey available too:
                           Fresh Local Honey
      I’m so grateful to the volunteers we worked shoulder to shoulder with this last week.  It makes a huge difference!  Thank you.
    Happy cooking to all.
