March 2, 2015 March Showers

A good farmer is nothing more nor less than a handy man with a sense of humus.
Dear Friends,
We just had a storm cell go over us, sending us scrambling for cover and now 20 minutes later, our glorious San Diego blue sky is back.  So beautiful.
Some of you will be receiving Claytonia, a petite delicate bunch of greens with thin lemon/lime flavored stems and small round basil leaves.  They are mild and sweet, high in Vit C, beta carotene and protein.  Also known as Miner’s Lettuce because during the ‘gold rush’ in California, this plant would grow wild by the stream beds in the early spring and be one of the first fresh foods of the winter.
Cooking is not recommended as it’s a delicate plant.  Instead, make a nice salad with some of these suggestions:  hard boiled eggs, sliced cooked beats, sliced baby leeks, walnut oil, red wine or sherry vinegar, toasted walnut pieces, salad oil, feta or goats cheese, tomatoes.
Enjoy..back out to help the the harvesting…
 We now have a ‘tab’ on 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.
