December 10, 2018 Mark Your Calendar for December 15th


I have four or five ideas that just keep floating around and I want to kind of just let one – like a beautiful butterfly, let it land somewhere.
Gillian_Flynn
     Dear Friends,
     Good morning.  Looks like we’re going to have another beautiful San Diego day.
     This coming Saturday, the 15th, we’re hosting an Art and Garden Sale here at the farm from 9″30 to noon.  We’ll have affordable farm gifts like framed original watercolor botanicals, tried and try perennial flowers in pots (including milkweed to help you Monarch butterfly friends), herbal gifts and more.  As parking is limited, please RSVP us so we can make arrangements.
Your ingredients for this week span the nutritional charts for healthy meals.  Hope you like them.  Here are a couple of easy recipes to try.
     If you would like to help support the farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program (click here for more information) that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through  Produce for Patriots (click here for more information), the non-profit founded by one of our clients, Rob M.   And you’ll receive a personal Thank You note from the family that receives.  It’s a good thing all ’round.
 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.

December 3, 2018 Ducks Love Rain!

I’m glad I don’t have to make a living farming. Too much hard work. Too many variables you don’t have control over, like, is it going to rain? All I can say is, god bless the real farmers out there.
– Fuzzy Zoeller
     Dear Friends,
     Glory be!  We got rain!  After receiving only 3 inches total last year, we got almost a third of that last week.  It was a joy to see the trees and plants soak up the long needed moisture.
     If you have any special requests, let me know.  We’ll see if we have or can source for you.

If we can’t afford to take good care of the land that feeds us, we’re 
in an insurmountable mess.
– Wendell Berry
     Dear Friends,
     Whew..we made it through Thanksgiving week!  That is no small feat when you consider we lose work days of being able to harvest, sort, clean, organize and pack delivery bags for ‘holidays’.  With a few exceptions of those that know, most people have no idea the human effort that goes into seeding, planting, watering, weeding, fertilizing and picking to have food on one’s table.  Good food.  Not food grown by computers and machines.  It’s an art, a science, a position on the State of affairs.  Thank you to our loyal supporters that know we really are taking the stand of guarding our fertile and productive little plot of land.  It’s quite amazing really.
     Your items for this week span the range of nutrients.  I learned something new about how much, or little, some people know about cooking.  One subscriber asked never to receive beets because they were too messy to peel before cooking!  If you think this too and it’s just too much mess and time, rest assured.  No, no you don’t peel before either boiling or baking.  The skin slips easily off once cooked and there’s no mess.  Delicious as they are with all their nutritional value and baking helps caramelize the ‘sugar’ content.  And yes, your digestive remains will reflect the red color…not a terrible disease that years ago one woman told me she got from eating our beets!
  •      On a personal note, I have an emergency dental appointment for today at one pm with our dentist in Tijuana.  Listening closely to news reports on the border crisis and movement through the cross over.  Keep your fingers crossed for us.
     If you have any special requests, let me know.  We’ll see if we have or can source for you.

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 Wirthlin
     Dear Friends,
     Yes, these were some of our turkeys we raised and no, they didn’t end up on a plate.  They were so fun to raise from chicks.  They especially adored Kendall, my husband, and would follow him down the road to the mailbox or want to sit on his chair or lap when he sat down.  They’d fly up into the trees at night, like our peacocks used to, to be safe for the night.  Good memories.
     I think I speak for many of us.  The holidays are for gatherings, being with loved ones and of course, lots of good food and a whole lot of work in the middle of the week!  Shorter days and cooler nights make for adjustments and the one we are looking forward to is some rain!
     Please remember your persimmons are the ones that are wonderful when they are soft (kind of like avocados) because if you bite into a firm one, you’ll pucker up.
Please remember that this week only:
   Wednesday deliveries will be on schedule and Thursday deliveries will be made on Tuesday.  
     If you have any special requests, let me know.  We’ll see if we have or can source for you.
     If you would like to help support the farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program (click here for more information) that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through  Produce for Patriots (click here for more information), the non-profit founded by one of our clients, Rob M.   And you’ll receive a personal Thank You note from the family that receives.  It’s a good thing all ’round.

November 5, 2018 Family Feud

A good laugh is sunshine in the house. 
William Makepeace Thackeray

     Dear Friends,
     I love growing luffas.  Seems no one uses them much anymore but we grow them just because they are so fascinating. Years ago there was a big family argument when someone insisted that the object in question (a dried luffa sponge) had to have come from the ocean until we showed and convinced her that the object really did grow from the earth and not from the sea!  This year we have some huge ones and if anyone wants to come and see for themselves, just give  me a call for a time.
     There’s some great ingredients this week for some basic (or creative) nutritious and tasty recipes this week.  Hope you enjoy the flowers…some of them are quite fragrant this week.
     If you have any special requests, let me know.  We’ll see if we have or can source for you.

October 29, 2018 Working Weather

Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.
William Cullen Bryant
     Dear Friends,
          I love this time of year, especially starting the days with the coastal blanket of fog.  It’s amazing how much more gets done rather than a blazing hot summers day.  All the winter squashes and gourds have been harvested and set away and we’re busy planting carrots, sweet turnips and radishes, kohlrabi, broccoli’s, cabbages, kales and many more.  There’ll be some good soups and stews for our night meals.
     If you have any special requests, let me know.  We’ll see if we have or can source for you.

October 22, 2018 Life’s a bowl of ‘tomatoes’?

Sometimes you get a bowl of tomatoes, not cherries.  It’s still all okay.
Unknown
     Dear Friends,
     I’d say we’re in for another week of picture perfect weather here in San Diego.  We’re busy seeding and planting more of the cooler weather veggies like broccoli, cabbage, carrots, sweet turnips, Chioggia beets, rutabaga, kales, spinach and many more.  We’ll be having plenty yummy delicious soups/stews bubbling on the stove as our days become shorter and cooler.  It’s really not hard to eat well if your frig is well stocked.
     We’re always happy to get your notes and comments.  The creative and nutritious dishes you all send copies of keep us busy replicating.  What creativity is out there!  On the down side though, some of the fruits, like the late season peaches, have been a bust.  We do our best to send only really good products but there’s times we just can’t see under the skin.  We always make up value lost in the next delivery.  Thanks again for letting us know.
     If you would like to help support the farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program (click here for more information) that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through  Produce for Patriots (click here for more information), the non-profit founded by one of our clients, Rob M.   And you’ll receive a personal Thank You note from the family that receives.  It’s a good thing all ’round.

October 15, 2018 Rise and Shine!

“When life gives you Monday, dip it in glitter and sparkle all day.”
     Dear Friends,
    It’s hard to believe it’s Monday again.  To where do the days of the week fly?
    The rain was most welcomed.  Last year we received around 3 inches, way below our normal levels and we’re hoping for a more ‘normal’ one this year.  Everything perked up with a good washing off and harvesting today will be so much easier with moist soil.

October 8, 2018 Found, Not Lost

Ideas are easy. It’s the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.

-Sue Grafton

     Dear Friends,
     Several years ago, Elsa, our star goat, got out of her pasture and we were looking everywhere for her only to find her on the table by the back door, sunning herself and waiting for treats!  Kinda cute..thought you’d like it.
     Lacinato kale is one of our favorite varieties of kale and is so versatile.  If you’re looking for an easy way to prepare, this is a good site:

October 1, 2018 The girls are hanging up their aprons!

Industrial agriculture, because it depends on standardization, has bombarded us with the message that all pork is pork, all chicken is chicken, eggs eggs, even though we all know that can’t really be true.
Joel Salatin
     Dear Friends,
     I’m very sorry to tell you that we will no longer be able to offer our chicken eggs for sale.  We received an unscheduled visit from the ‘egg’ authorities and in order to be able to continue, we would have to pay specific yearly taxes, find the time for the required paperwork and be available for unannounced visits.  I know when there’s been a new book or expose on confined animal production because I receive numerous phone calls or emails from people demanding a description of our facilities and I patiently explain how our small flock of girls live, what they eat and a description of their home.  I also nicely tell them our chickens live better than a lot of people on this planet.  For people that work here and visitors, they see for themselves how happy they are. They are our pets – part of our family.   That being said, the surprise visit was not about them, rather compliance to the state for remittance.
     And along those same lines, is why we have had a name change to Seabreeze Family Farm (absolutely nothing has changed in our 30 years of feeding people and nurturing our soil) and no longer call ourselves a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), although we were among the first in the U.S.
     So the ole girls are hanging up their aprons and want to thank their supporters for their good life til the end of their happy days.
     If you would like to help support the farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program (click here for more information) that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through  Produce for Patriots (click here for more information), the non-profit founded by one of our clients, Rob M.   And you’ll receive a personal Thank You note from the family that receives.  It’s a good thing all round.
     Oh, and Donna will take care of crediting your account for any eggs you were charged for and didn’t receive.
 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.
Stephenie
