February 23, 2015 The Pulse of Spring

Buttercups and daisies,
Oh, the pretty flowers;
Coming ere the spring time,
To tell of sunny hours.
When the trees are leafless;
When the fields are bare;
Buttercups and daisies
Spring up here and there.
-Mary Howitt
Dear Friends,
     Thank you so much to you wonderful people that did the Dance for Rain!  It wasn’t a ‘soaker’, but definitely enough to saturate the soil and give everything a nice drink of water.  When the sun peaks through today, I suspect we’ll have even more flowers blooming then the last couple of weeks.  Sweet peas, stock, feverfew, calendulas, Peruvian lilies, snapdragons, Callas lilies, King Alfred daffodils and more.  They’re the first on stage for the opening of the curtain for the extravaganza called Spring.  We always welcome our customers to come and ‘see’ the farm, especially over the next couple of months.  Just give us a quick call or email to set and time and see the beautiful food and flowers.
      I think by now, just about everyone has heard of the health benefits of kale.  You all have been sent Napa cabbage the last couple of deliveries and this is the last week for them.  Thank you for the notes on how good it has been.    We will be harvesting spring kale for the next three weeks, so here are some of our favorite tried and true recipes:
 We now have a ‘tab’ on www.seabreezeorganicfarm.org to purchase a delivery going directly to local military families.   Letting your friends and associates know of this program will be appreciated as well.

May you enjoy and utilize all your items for this week.  If you need suggestions for use or recipes on any of your items, feel free to email me and I’ll help.


Please note that some substitutions may apply from time to time.
