Dear Friends,
Let’s start with ‘good news’ like talking about snow peas! We have a small crop producing, unfortunately not enough for an item for everyone (the raccoons ravaged the roots of most of them) and they can be added to your deliveries for the next couple of weeks through the Green Store. They are so sweet and crisp and take just a minute or two to stir fry..that is if they’re not eaten raw just out of the bag. They take a lot of time to harvest but are so worth it! don’t miss out!
For more serious news, I’d say most people if polled would say they think local farms are important to a community. But seriously, how many neighborhoods or communities even have a local farm anymore? I think you know the answer. Seabreeze has managed 30 years now to continually and determinedly grow food, flowers and protect the ecological environment for our fellow San Diegans and have done so with the support and participation of our loyal subscribers. And things change..people move away or have circumstances change and can no longer continue their support. So we are asking you, our readers and current shareholders to help keep the farm’s base secure by signing up for our military family program, We’re on a campaign to provide for 10 more military family donations through our Hungry Heroes service this month. You can choose a weekly donation, every other week, or even once a month. It’s quite important work. If anyone has questions or suggestions, please feel free to give me a call and I’ll be happy to answer questions or help set you up. Will you be willing to join us in such important work? I look forward to hearing from you and will report next week on our progress.
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.
