Love & Hate – Is That a Turnip You’re Holding?

November 18, 2019
Volume 1,656
Dear Friends,
Woe of the week. Now, I already have a love/hate relationship with technology as my associates know all too well. I mean, why else did I become a’farmer’ at 40 except to hopefully escape from the modern world and yet, here I am, tied to computers and ‘Droids and with no choice about the matter. The old office computer (over 10 yrs old?) inexplicably and most inconveniently, decided to bow out forever early Thursday morning. Any crisis I share about wild animals, invasive weeds, devouring insects, escalating costs of basic services –all pale to the daunting task of staring at screens and programs different from the old familiar ones (Windows 7) and relying on my already over tasked tech friends to drop their lives and obligations to get us running again. I’d much rather be digging a drainage ditch!. So heart felt gratitude to Donna, Rob and Michael for coming to the rescue and Kendall, my long enduring husband.
So let’s talk about something much more exciting (pun)..turnips! I know, they have a really bad rap, but honestly, these little beauties will (hopefully) change your minds. They don’t look anything like the big, tough and frankly nasty tasting things in the store. These white little gems are not strong in taste, with a mild flavor and are delicious either raw or lightly cooked (please don’t overcook–they’ll be mushy). The seeds are very expensive and worth every dime. Do so hope you enjoy them. It was quite chilly out when they were harvested, causing stiff and cold fingers so hope you like them.
The next week will be Thanksgiving so remember we’ll be packing on Tuesday morning, delivering Thursday people the same day and Wednesday people on schedule. Farm pick-ups may come Tuesday or Wednesday of that week. Good luck to all with the squeezed schedule and hope it won’t be too stressful. Still don’t understand why we can’t have these ‘get together holidays when daylight is longer!
Enjoy your fresh veggies for the week…and take a nice autumn walk when you can.
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.
