Celebrate the highly evolved sunflower - Seabreeze Family Farm San Diego

Celebrate the highly evolved sunflower

October 21, 2019
Volume 1,651
And the yellow sunflower by the brook, in autumn beauty stood.
William Cullen Bryant
Dear Friends,
Many of the living organisms here, both plant and otherwise, are all part of an environmental system. The sunflower, for example, related to daisies, lettuce and marigolds to name a few, is highly evolved to ensure its reproduction by producing many small flowers arranged in a head that become seeds. Enough seeds, in fact, to replicate and still feed the birds. It’s called a composite formation (eudicots). I like to think a neighborhood farm fans out to its community similarly. We had a small crop of sunflowers that are part of some the bouquets for this week.
It’s time to turn on the oven with this week’s acorn squash. So easy, nutritious and versatile. If nothing else, just throw it in the oven at any ol’ temperature. It’s done when it’s soft to a fork or knife and from there you can be fancy with it or keep it au natural. Coconut butter is delicious in place of butter, and you can use honey or no sweetener and it’s still wonderful. Try the recipe and let us know what you think:
We know many of our subscribers are enthusiastic about getting freshly harvested food from Seabreeze Family Farm. Please take a photo of a plate you prepared with your farm share and post it on our Facebook page and on Next Door. We’d love for your friends and neighbors to see how they could benefit from your neighborhood’s locally grown food. We look forward to seeing how you transform your Seabreeze ingredients!
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.
