The Art of Food

““… food is not simply organic fuel to keep body and soul together, it is a perishable art that must be savoured at the peak of perfection.”
― E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,
Dear Friends,
There are times when farming can be a little hum drum. Seed, plant, water, weed, water, harvest. But Saturday we had a nice break from our routine with about 20 members from the San Diego Urban Sketchers that came for a quick tour and then everyone chose a spot to do a painting. As a student of watercolor myself, it was a delight to observe such an enthusiastic group look around with fresh vision and choose a focus point from which to preserve their impressions. We look forward to having them back someday as the seasons change.
There’s a saying about farmers..they’re only as good as the land they walk.
Enjoy your fresh fruits and veggies for the week.
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.
The ingredients below will be included in our
January 29th and 30th deliveries and farm pick-ups.
Please keep in mind that last-minute substitutions are sometimes necessary.
