Farmer’s don’t break – supply chains do.
Holly Spangler
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Well, we’ve all made it another week and we’re bustling at the farm. The weather is in our favor for harvesting and getting new crops in the ground this week. It’s been a good winter and spring for growing (except of course for the gophers, snails and weeds).
A huge thank you to our volunteers for harvesting flowers and vegetables on Saturday. You all were so sweet and terrific — much gratitude. It’s amazing how much the earth gives back to us through our plantings.
On a personal note: I’ve railed for years that food needs to be local and it’s outrageous that so many big farms are foreign owned and family farms are still disappearing across our nation!
We’re adding new items on the Green Store every week and if you have suggestions as to what you’d like offered, please feel free to let me know.
Here’s an idea to keep children engaged during these times: Pick up a container of earthworms from our Green Store! All you need is a simple bucket with holes in the bottom. Then your kids, and the adults, can watch the miracle of carbon processing to soil and nutrients the natural way. It’s a book full of learning about carbon sequestration for free! Anything with a carbon base makes for happy worms: from tissue and paper to vegetable/fruit scraps. We also have books on the Green Store by the late beloved Loren Nancarrow for gardening tips. They’ll be available next week.
Farm Pick-up orders will be on the table next to the cooler. This minimizes touching other bags looking for yours. Please pick up between 1 and 7 pm on Wednesday and if you can’t make it until Thursday, that’s ok, just please drop me a note so we’ll know you’re coming. If you don’t pick up your order, it means we have to go back at night to be sure they are put back into the cooler. Translation: more work and detail after a long day.
To maintain social distancing, only those with prior clearance may visit the farm. Thanks for understanding.

Perfumed air from flowers

April 13, 2020
Volume 1,673
I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.
Anne Lamott
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Happy Spring to everyone (regardless of current events). We’re all well and healthy here and although the rain was welcomed, it sure was cold and wet harvesting this week. As more people realize there are real people planning, planting, caring for, harvesting, washing, packing etc real crops and real food, it is gratifying to see more of our shareholders (and a sincere welcome to our new ones) not taking food for granted and renewed interest in preserving and maintaining farm land. Seabreeze land has been in full production for over 30 years. We’re tiny but mighty compared to the big boys. Crop after crop from carefully nurtured and maintained soil is testament to the power of Nature on the good side. We thank all our shareholders for making this possible.
It should be a glorious week for weather and signs of new life all around us. We can’t wait to open the farm again to visitors. We’ve had many requests over the last few weeks and will do so again when we can. For our shareholder families on-lock down with children, email me if you’d like to get them out of the house for some fresh air and something different to do. Friday mornings we can accommodate a few visitors (one or two families), and of course maintaining distancing. And our two pet goats love the extra fruit snacks.
Another idea for the children (how in the world are they supposed to understand all of this), is to pickup a container through the Green Store of our earthworms! It doesn’t take a fancy operation – a simple bucket with holes in the bottom is enough and watching the miracle of carbon processing the natural way to soil and nutrients is a book full of learning Carbon sequestration for free! Adults get addicted. Anything with a carbon base, from tissue and paper to vegetable/fruit scraps make for happy worms.
More than ever, our military families so need and appreciate our products donated by our shareholders. The stories are so touching of reminding them of ‘home’ and the children get involved with the ‘surprises’ of each item that comes out of the bag. Please be generous and give a share here…..**
Farm Pick-up orders for this week: they will be on the table next to the cooler. This minimizes touching other bags looking for yours. Please pick up between 1 and 7 pm on Wednesday and if you can’t make it until Thursday, that’s ok, just please drop me a note so we’ll know you’re coming.

I made a lute, I smashed the lute
Lost the fruit, lost the tune.

No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth, and no culture comparable to that of the garden.

Also, please keep in mind substitutions may be necessary from the lists below however at this point we should meet our targets.
We have a new source of ethically’produced organic eggs, available on the Green Store or as a regular item to be added.
Received a small shipment of wonderful local honey Sunday. Not on the Green Store yet, the different sizes will be on it for the week after, but drop me a note if you want some this week.
If anyone one wants orders by the case, drop me a note.
May your fresh flowers, fruits and veggies for the week bring you sustenance and satisfaction.

Wondering about food safety at Seabreeze?

March 23, 2020
Volume 1,670
“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm.”
—Winston Churchill
Dear friends,
Welcome to our new shareholders! You’re joining a collaboration to keep local agriculture a reality, and we’re grateful for your support.
While we all are facing uncertain times due to the coronavirus, some of you may be wondering about food safety on the farm. Your food items are handled minimally and we’re using heightened cautionary practices. Further, the farm is a healthy environment and access is restricted. We’re happy to answer any questions you might have and will respond to all correspondence as soon as we can.
Here’s a quote I find particularly relevant this week:
“As you move through these changing times, be easy on yourself and be easy on one another. You are at the beginning of something new. You are learning a new way of being.” — from the council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers.
May your fresh flowers, fruits and veggies for the week bring you sustenance and satisfaction.
If you would like to help support the Farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through Produce for Patriots, the non-profit founded by one of our shareholders, Rob M. 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 any questions or need cooking tips. May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.

Stay Calm and Carry On

March 16, 2020
Volume 1,669
I’m continually inspired by nature and the rainbow is one of nature’s greatest optical phenomenons. The sighting of a rainbow never fails to bring a smile to people’s faces. They signify optimism and positivity: with them comes the sunshine after the rain.
Matthew Williamson
Dear Friends,
I’m like the proverbial prophet in the desert ceaselessly preaching about healthy foods and local farms. Remember Alice Waters? She and I are of the some era. Same message. I hope she’s still cooking like we’re still growing!
And we’re still doing our work to the credit of our compact and loyal band of shareholders. Or stakeholders as I sometimes say, because the stability and sustainability of a small farm perpetually is at stake.
It requires stalwart passion to bend nature into something entirely different, whether it’s forest or plains or the tops of sand bluffs.
Nature is powerful. Trust me. She may go along for a while but it’s just a matter of time before she says, “No. I want something else to develop here. I want my grasses to flourish there.” So she releases trillions of seeds to overcome your carefully tended plot. Or she’ll let you establish what you want for a while and and then sends hordes of insects to devour them. Or a fungus to maliciously spread exponentially in the middle of the night. The power of her will is underground too. Hordes of unstoppable gophers and critters ceaselessly creating cities and transportation systems to rival a metropolis.
Next are animals: deer, rabbits, rodents, coyotes, skunks, raccoons, bobcats, birds, you name it. “Isn’t it grand someone laid out this feast for us? And provided a safe place to make more of us?” I could go on. I’ll stop.
So now we have a challenge that we’re all doing our best to live through. This virus may be around but my thought is that it’s not looking for a home on plants. My advice is to support and even donate time or funds to your closest real farm, to get out in nature, feel the earth and believe this outbreak will be beat.
Oh, and to the people that are receiving our items this week, Mother Nature did it again and our carefully time-spaced lettuces are all maturing at the same time. So this week you’ll be receiving two heads instead of the normal one. Please find a way to either be creative or share with someone that might enjoy it.
Enjoy your fresh flowers, fruits and veggies for the week.
If you would like to help support the farm and our work, please consider signing up for our Hungry Heroes program that donates to appreciative San Diego military families or through Produce for Patriots, the non-profit founded by one of our clients, Rob M. 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 any questions or need cooking tips. May our food this week nourish, comfort and sustain you.
