August 13, 2018 We Can Do This!

There is nothing I like better at the end of a hot summer’s day than taking a short walk around the garden. You can smell the heat coming up from the earth to meet the cooler night air.
– Peter Mayle
Dear Friends,
     Congratulations fellow San Diegans!  We’ve made it through another long week of this hellish heat.  I know for many, your homes, car and work place have air conditioning or you’re on vacation and perhaps seeking relief at the beach. And that’s nice.  But for us, we had no choice.. Now, I’m fully aware things could be worse.  We dodged the wild fires that are too terrible to talk about that our northern neighbors suffered. Never the less, it was a rough week.  When we seeded the squashes, beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and the other summer crops, it was with visions of refreshing salads, favorite and new recipes to try and of course, the joy of plucking beans and cucumbers right off the vines and enjoying on the spot.  But after just 2 hours of picking cucumbers in the blazing sun, I can assure you, the thoughts weren’t very pleasant..  and then an on-shore breeze would waft through the gardens,  a hummingbird would flutter near by for a drink from the dripping sprinkler or a pair of monarch butterflies would cavort near by.  It’s all on what you focus on!
     One of my favorite ‘go-to’ summer sliced cucumber recipes is  so easy and a ‘must try’.  1/4 c rice vinegar, splash or two of soy sauce, a little chopped ginger if you have it (not necessary), a little honey or sugar, a tsp of sesame oil and presto, a refreshing dressing. Pour over sliced cucumbers, chill and enjoy.  We like to sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top.
     And more good news.  Have re-ordered sone of my absolutely favorite items from ‘The Naked Bee’, a U.S. company with fabulous products and ingredients  The hand soap is indispensable in my kitchen, and the hand/body lotion is so cooling and soothing.  They’ve combined wonderful natural scents that are just a pleasure.  I especially like the little candle to light in the bathroom in the evening and take a quick  cooling shower.  They’re available on the GREEN STORE under Personal Care at a very reasonable price.
      Vacation time is here for many and our military families are always grateful to receive your share.  Just drop us a note when you’ll be gone and we’ll see it’s given for good use.
 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.

August 6, 2018 Farm News – The more things change…

So if a college education is indispensable, the challenge as I see it is how to make it more accessible.
– Gordon Gee
Dear Friends,
     Admittedly I don’t leave the farm very often. Mostly only by necessity.  Things change here daily.  Some subtle, some dramatic.  I don’t find it dull or limiting, rather mesmerizing and fulfilling. When there are thousands of life forms dependent on human care to become food for people or animals, there’s no missing a step.  But the other day, we had to go south from Carmel Valley on the freeway and I was stunned by the construction and change by the university and the medical center.  It’s a new world.
     Good foundations for a well spent life however, don’t change that much.  A cornerstone, like integrity. is a good education..  Having taught for many years at Lincoln and San Diego High Schools, I was always pleased to see qualified and motivated students go on to higher education.  What has changed is the staggering cost of ‘advanced’ schooling.
     Jonathan (pictured), is the son of Andres Ramirez, our one full-time employee that has loyally and steadfastly worked the land, providing the crops for over 20 years, to our farm supporters. He is an exemplary young man. He is dedicated to his studies, articulate, intelligent and with good promise to contribute to the next generation.  He has availed himself of financial assistance through scholarships and the family is contributing all that they possibly can.  Here is Jonathan’s letter:
 
To Whom It May Concern,
I am Jonathan Ramirez, son of Andres Ramirez, a long time worker on
Seabreeze Organic Farm for nearly two decades. I am a third-year
undergrad student at California State University, Fullerton, studying to get
into the university’s teacher credential program. I assist my father with farm
work at Seabreeze between semesters.

I am asking for financial assistance to assist with my expenses in college.
This can vary from a simple one time donation to a donation per semester
until I earn my degree. All donations can be set at the amount you wish.
I graduated from Vista High School as an International Baccalaureate
scholar in the top 1% of my graduating class. I am currently in the top 7.5%
of the junior class in college as indicated by an invitation into the Phi Kappa
Phi honor society. I have been on the dean’s list for the past four
consecutive semesters.

Thank you for your time.
Jonathan

P.S. You can contact me for questions or further details at any of the
following:
Phone: (760) 755-3565
      Thank you for the notes and comments on the collards last week. One was  pretty funny describing trying to figure out what in the world they were supposed to do with ‘dinosaur’ food.  Use a leaf as a fan against the heat? I look forward to hearing what you think about the kohlrabi for this week. We love it fresh like an apple.
      Vacation time is here for many and our military families are always grateful to receive your share.  Just drop us a note when you’ll be gone and we’ll see it’s given for good use.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.

July 30, 2018 Which Way?

Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path.

– Phillip Sweet
Dear Friends,
     Whew.  We will be so glad when the temperatures start going lower, taking the humidity with it.  Outdoor work certainly has it’s benefits but when you’re looking at a long row of green beans to pick by hand and the sun is beating down, it’s a good idea to keep your eye on the task at hand anticipating the relief of the last few feet.  We like enjoying these easy to cook legumes with a little garlic, ghee and slivered almonds.  A classic.
     Collards.  Yup, that big bunch of large green leaves that someone from the south will instantly recognize.  Not so much for urban San Diegans I’ve found out.  But don’t be intimidated or over whelmed.  They are quite easy to prepare and pair well with so many seasonings and additions.  And like broccoli (related), they’re so good for you.    Here are a few recipes from which to choose:
     Avocados are especially taking a hit from these heat spells causing fast ripening and making it terribly difficult to get to you in good condition.  If you receive a dark and somewhat soft avocado, it’s best to open and eat almost right away. They won’t having staying power to wait a couple of days before becoming over ripe. Same thing with the melons.
      Vacation time is here for many and our military families are always grateful to receive your share.  Just drop us a note when you’ll be gone and we’ll see it’s given for good use.
 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.

July 23, 2018 Stay Cool!

“America is hope. It is compassion. It is excellence. It is valor.”
 — Paul Tsongas
Dear Friends,
     This photo is of some of the family members of three of the military families that receive the donations from you all from the farm.  They came to help harvest miniature roses and lavender for a couple of hours and the children had such a good time.
     This Friday we’ll be hosting a class of visually impaired students for a tour.  I’m quite excited about being able to share the farm sensory experiences that surround us every day.
     This week we’re including something called lemon verbena.  It smells heavenly and just seep in hot water and then make a cooling and refreshing iced tea (or let it dry and use later for a hot drink) that’ll help get through these next hot days.  Head for the shade!
     Oh, and do make pesto with the basil.  It’s so easy and you can freeze it too.
      A hearty thank you to our little band of helpers:  Andres, Marisol, Jessica.  And of course to our shareholders and financial supporters that help keep us going.  We do good things here!
 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.

July 16, 2018 Friends for Life

When the flower blossoms, the bee will come.
– Srikumar Rao
Dear Friends,
     Every day I have hundreds of conversations  – mostly to my plants, of which we have thousands.  Even simple thoughts of appreciation will invoke demands such as ‘I’m thirsty, I’m hungry, I need a haircut, I’m crowded, I’m being attacked – save me’.  There’s no such thing as a leisurely stroll through the gardens for me.
    Years ago I experimented with a flower seed I hadn’t seen anyone else grow and discovered a flower that just wanted to be friends and  appreciated.  The rose mallow or lavatera.   It’s lovely vigorous early growth pattern tops out about waist high and then all it wants to do is unfurl and share it’s gorgeous buds.  They open almost before your eyes, even when harvested and have the best manners.  When the blossom peaks, they will delicately change to another lovely color and curl back together.  Not even dropping off to ‘mess’ your table.  Do so hope you have enjoyed them..they’ve almost finished for this year
     Have you a cauliflower still lurking in your refrigerator from a prior delivery and don’t know what to do with it?  Here’s the easiest besides raw…heat oven to about 350, pour some seasoned olive oil (garlic, paprika, salt, pepper – your favorites) all over it, place a pan of water on the bottom shelf under the baking pan with the cauliflower in it and cook until just tender, not mushy. (The water is for moisture – will not make it mushy – uck). Maybe sprinkle a little good melting cheese on top the last couple of minutes. Easy, delicious and versatile.
      A hearty thank you to our little band of helpers:  Andres, Marisol, Jessica.  And of course to our shareholders and financial supporters that help keep us going.  We do good things here!
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.

“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace.”

July 2nd, 2018 Let Freedom Ring!

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
-Elmer Davis
Dear Friends,
    This Fourth of July, won’t you consider a food gift to one or more of our military families on the waiting list?  These are wonderful people, many raising lovely children and I figure it’s the least we can do to say Thank You for their services.
     We have two programs to choose from.  Either Seabreeze’s initial program of  Hungry Heroes
or through the non-profit Produce for Patriots, for a tax deduction, and will be gratefully accepted.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
     Call or email me if you have questions or need cooking tips.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

John LubbockThe Use Of Life

     Well, doesn’t that sound lovely to be able to do! ‘ Doesn’t happen much around here.. -there’s too much to do!  But sunsets are another thing..days tasks are completed as best we can and our lovely San Diego sunsets help ease the aching back.
 
     Enjoy your week in good health.
 
Oh, and those of you hard pressed to find different ways to eat your summer squash – we sympathize.  Too much of a good thing I know.

June 11, 2018 Mulberries

Sometimes we let life guide us, and other times we take life by the horns. But one thing is for sure: no matter how organized we are, or how well we plan, we can always expect the unexpected.
– Brandon Jenner
Dear Friends,
     Saturday, June 16th, from 9:30 to 11:30 we’re going to be ‘open’ for appointments for mulberry picking.  I planted a row of the trees from cuttings when the developers put in the housing units next to the farm and they now provide beauty, shade, habitat and food for birds, furies (coyotes, raccoons, and more) and us!  If you’d like to come, please RSVP with me (parking is limited) and be ready for purple stained fingers and lips and to see the farm.
     A hearty Thank You to the supporters of our Hungry Heroes programs.
     We still have a small supply of delicious and healthy honey on the GreenStore.
 Here’s to good food, friends, families and helping others.
