Tree Time!

2022-01-19T18:36:09+00:00January 19, 2022|

There's a farmer saying that vegetables are like babies, requiring constant attention.  We spend most of our time around here tending to the veggies, sometimes more than they deserve.  Yet our farm also relies heavily on so-called "permanent crops":  fruit and nut orchards and vineyards.  In fact, they make up a third of the acreage we farm and a very important component of your weekly CSA boxes. It's true that trees and vines  don't [MORE ...]

Chard Puttanesca

2022-01-19T17:27:53+00:00January 19, 2022|

This recipe features the same intense flavors as its pasta-sauce cousin:  garlic, olives and/or capers, and anchovies.  Miso paste would be an appropriate vegan substitute for the anchovies.  Chard stems are edible and sweet, with a texture like celery.  I don't always include them when I cook chard, but in this recipe they soak up the other flavors and make the whole  dish better. Rinse and shake dry 1 bunch of Chard.  Separate the [MORE ...]

2022 Deja Vu?

2022-01-12T19:08:32+00:00January 12, 2022|

With farming,there is always a little bit of "Groundhog Day".   Every year we follow a plan that is partially dictated by the crops and the  seasons, and partially by our own design -- but on paper it changes very little from year to year.  We may make small tweaks in the program, but it is essentially a pre-populated task list. Of course, a farm is not a computer program.  There are dozens of factors [MORE ...]

Muddling Through Another Year

2021-12-21T19:09:46+00:00December 21, 2021|

This time last year, most of us were hunkering down for the holidays, missing our far-away loved ones, and worrying about, well, everything.  A year later, most of us have gotten our vaccines and now even our booster shots, and we were looking forward to a happier, more relaxed -- a more "normal" -- holiday season.  Then Omicron (the Greek word for "Grinch") showed up. As humans, we crave certainty, "normalcy", and stability.  Agriculture [MORE ...]

Parsnip-Leek Bread Pudding

2021-12-21T18:48:27+00:00December 21, 2021|

This savory vegetarian bread pudding is a nice alternative (or addition to) stuffing.  Recipe is from Martha Stewart. Peel  and trim 1 lb. parsnips.  Parboil until they are tender then cool under water.  Slice in half and remove the cores if they are woody (not easily pierced with a knife).  Chop into cubes. Trim, clean and dice 1 large or 2 small Leeks. Trim and dice 3 stalks of celery. Wash and trim 1/2 [MORE ...]

Roasted Fingerlings and Carrots with Chimichurri

2021-12-15T18:58:13+00:00December 15, 2021|

The cilantro-based Chimichurri adds a lively kick to this simple but delicious recipe. Heat the oven to 425. Rinse 1 lb. of Fingerling Potatoes and slice in half lengthwise. Rinse an equal amount of carrots and then cut so that they are more or less the same size as the potatoes. Toss the vegetables with 3 T. olive oil and salt and pepper generously. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and [MORE ...]

Past the Halfway Point

2021-12-15T18:15:09+00:00December 15, 2021|

For the first time since 2019, Terra Firma looks the way it is supposed to in the winter.  There are mud and puddles everywhere, the sky is greyish white instead of blue, and everything is green -- not just our vegetable fields and citrus orchards.  In particular, the peaks of the Coast Range to the west of us have finally sprouted a coat of grass to cover the ghastly burned soil that has darkened [MORE ...]

Important: Our final CSA box delivery for 2021 will be on Thursday, December 23rd. If you live in the Sacramento area, look for an email from Terra Firma advising about delivery changes for your location that week. We have not seen the sun much here in the last month or so.

Kale Salad with Delicata “Croutons” and Radish

2021-12-08T18:09:31+00:00December 8, 2021|

This is really just a variation on a recipe I've posted before.  Roasted Delicata makes a healthier version of croutons while the purple starburst of the KN-Bravo radishes contrasts beautifully with the dark green Kale leaves and adds another texture. Slice 1 Delicata Squash in half lengthwise, then scoop out the seeds.  You can discard them or wash them, dry them, roast them and use as an additional salad topping.  Dice the entire squash [MORE ...]

Making Salad Quick and Easy, on the Farm and in the Kitchen.

2021-12-01T18:49:11+00:00December 1, 2021|

I don't like travelling much, which is good since I don't get to do it very often. But I did travel to Texas over the holiday to visit with my in-laws -- the first time in two years that I've left California. Texas' local cuisine doesn't exactly focus heavily on vegetables, so it was interesting to see an abundance of salad greens and other healthy items working their way onto restaurant menus. Even at [MORE ...]

Meyer Lemon Vinagrette

2021-12-01T18:45:52+00:00December 1, 2021|

This simple dressing will turn just about anything into a tasty salad, even a single ingredient like julienned carrots or steamed broccoli. Zest 1 meyer lemon, then juice it.  Juice another 3 lemons. Peel and mince 1 clove of garlic.  Add it to the lemon juice and zest and let sit for 5 minutes. Add 1 tsp. grainy mustard and 1/2 C. olive oil. Shake vigorously, then taste and season with salt and pepper.  [MORE ...]

We've re-jiggered our harvest, packing and delivery schedule this week to ensure that everyone who wants a CSA box this week can get it before the Thanksgiving holiday -- and we can give our staff two [MORE ...]

Mashed Parsnips & Potatoes with Roasted Leeks

2021-11-23T18:53:34+00:00November 23, 2021|

You can simply boil the leeks with either of the vegetables, but roasting them adds lots of flavor, especially if you deglaze the pan with lemon juice. Heat a pot of salted water to a boil. Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Peel 1 lb. parsnips and boil, whole, until easily pierced with a knife.  Remove from the water and rinse to cool. Peel 2 lbs. of potatoes (or leave unpeeled) and add to [MORE ...]

Butternut-Date Pudding Cakes

2021-11-17T17:53:06+00:00November 17, 2021|

There's a Butternut Squash in your boxes today, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  You could make a pumpkin pie, but why not try something a little different?  This has all the flavor of the classic desert,  but with a very different spin.  You can make these in individual ramekins for a nice presentation, or in a traditional flat-sided pie pan.  This recipe is from the New York Times. Up to 3 days [MORE ...]

Fennel-Butternut Gratin with Lemon

2021-11-17T17:46:55+00:00November 17, 2021|

If you're not a huge Fennel fan, this recipe may help.  Caramelizing it on the bottom of a gratin mellows the anise flavor while bringing out the sweetness and giving it a wonderfully unique texture. To prepare the fennel, cut the tough base off the bottom of 1 Fennel bulb.  Trim the stalks off at the top of the bulb.  (The stalks are not edible but they make a nice addition to a homemade [MORE ...]

Covid’s Long Shadow

2021-11-17T18:21:20+00:00November 17, 2021|

There's an argument going on right now in the media between the folks who think inflation is "transitory" and those who think it's more permanent.  Meanwhile, prices for just about all the consumer goods most of us  buy is going up.  Businesses are paying higher wages to attract employees as well as higher costs for trucking, materials and inventory.  They are beginning to pass these costs on to their customers in the form of [MORE ...]

Green Bean-Tofu Stir Fry with Marinated Cabbage

2021-11-10T19:33:23+00:00November 10, 2021|

This stir-fry adds finely shredded, marinated raw cabbage after the cooking is finished.  If you prefer your cabbage cooked, feel free to add it to the wok while stir-frying.  This is a fast, filing and tasty meal. Crumble 12 oz. extra firm tofu and then drizzle with 1 T. soy sauce and 1 t. sesame oil or hot sesame oil. Trim 1/2 lb. green beans and cut into 1-2" pieces. Peel and mince 3 [MORE ...]

Important Thanksgiving Holiday Update

2021-11-10T17:53:31+00:00November 10, 2021|

In the dark year that was 2020, Thanksgiving might have been the most constrained of all holidays. With the Covid vaccine still months away, large indoor gatherings and sharing big meals with others were verboten. The holiday itself reminded us all of how long it had been since we had seen friends and loved ones, or worse. Here at the farm, we barely took any time off from work for last year's holiday, where [MORE ...]

Lemony Potato-Leek-White Bean Soup

2021-11-03T17:45:36+00:00November 3, 2021|

Potato Leek soup is a cozy winter-time standard.  This recipe adds a few bells and whistles: roasted garlic, creamy white beans and zingy lemon juice and zest.  To give it some spice, you can add some fresh jalapeno or Poblano chile. Heat the oven to 400.  Cut the top off 1 head of garlic and wrap in a piece of foil.  Optional: Wrap 1 Jalapeno or Poblano chile in a piece of foil as [MORE ...]

Opening Day of Citrus Season!

2021-11-03T17:24:31+00:00November 3, 2021|

Winter is citrus season in Northern California. And when winter arrives early, as it did this year, so do the first citrus crops:  Mandarins and Meyer Lemons.  It's a bit of a paradox, but these subtropical fruits -- which cannot withstand freezing temperatures -- don't really ripen here until nighttime temperatures drop into the 40s. Unlike all the other fruit we grow, citrus trees are "evergreen".  Although they are not related to pine trees, [MORE ...]

Kale-Romaine Salad with Roasted Delicata

2021-10-27T17:35:28+00:00October 27, 2021|

Roasted Delicata Squash serves as a healthier version of croutons in this recipe, which includes a vegan dressing that stands in for Caesar, but you can just use a regular Caesar if you like. Slice 2 small or 1 Large Delicata squash (or do more and have some extra for snacking) in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and pulp.  You can clean the pulp off the seeds and roast them if you [MORE ...]

Famine to Feast

2021-10-27T16:35:43+00:00October 27, 2021|

Terra Firma Farm Founder Paul Holmes had three simple words to describe farming here:  "Feast or Famine".  Those three words were the first to come to mind on Sunday as the rain fell ceaselessly for well over 24 hours over Northern California.  In the "warm-up" storm on Wednesday and Thursday, we got a nice little soaking of an inch.  That's a pretty common October storm for us -- at least it used to be, [MORE ...]

Countdown to Rain

2021-10-20T18:13:39+00:00October 20, 2021|

Oh, the changes we can see in a week -- not to mention in a year. Last week, you might remember, it was a dustbowl here. Today, it is lightly drizzling and the ground is damp enough to make the soil stick to your boots. Last year on this date, it was 95 degrees. We haven't seen it above 80 in over a week now and we'll be lucky to hit 70 today. October [MORE ...]

Yep, Fajitas made with Tofu.  The vegetables in your boxes right now, especially peppers, onions and green beans, are the perfect combo for making Fajitas.  This vegetarian recipe uses tofu as the protein, but you can use whatever you like.

Dust Storm

2021-10-13T17:12:26+00:00October 13, 2021|

On Sunday night, my wife and I watched the film "Interstellar", in which the Earth is losing its ability to feed its population due to climate change.  In the first few minutes of the movie, a monster dust storm overtakes the protaganist's farm and coats everything in powdery soil.  On Monday morning, we got our own real-life dust storm that arrived thanks to dry 50 mph winds that pummeled the bone dry landscape of [MORE ...]

Cabbage Som Tum

2021-10-06T17:35:37+00:00October 6, 2021|

Som Tum is a classic Thai salad made with unripe Papaya.  This recipe uses cabbage, which has a similar texture but which absorbs the flavor of the dressing more readily.  This is a non-spicy version, but you can add fresh hot peppers to taste if you like. Bring a small pot of water to a boil.  Trim 1 C. green beans and add to the water when it boils.  As soon as the water [MORE ...]

Tiny Bugs and Deadly Viruses

Some of the biggest threats to humanity's survival are so tiny that it can be hard to take them seriously -- Covid is a pretty good example.  Thrips are insects that can barely be seen with the naked eye, yet they are the single most costly agricultural pest worldwide.  The average person has no idea they even exist.  And they love climate change. Thrips literally suck the life out of the plants they love.  [MORE ...]

The Limits of Farming with Less Water

2021-09-29T18:33:29+00:00September 29, 2021|

We just wrapped up harvest of our pistachios -- a bumper crop.  Most years, we irrigate the orchard once afterwards and then wait for it to rain.  We normally finish irrigation of all our permanent crops in October.  Last year, however, when the rain didn't come we continued to irrigate the orchards -- every month, once a month, all through the winter.  I hope we don't have to do the same thing this year, [MORE ...]

Caponata Salad

2021-09-22T17:48:19+00:00September 22, 2021|

Caponata is traditionally a saucy relish made by cooking eggplant, tomatoes and other vegetables and served with bread or pasta. This recipe turns it into a salad with similar flavors -- salty, sweet, tangy -- but more interesting textures. Cut eggplant in 1/2" thick rounds.  On a small plate, whisk together 1 T. each olive oil and soy sauce.   Coat both sides of each slice with the mixture. Arrange the eggplant in a single [MORE ...]

A High Bar for Straight Lines

2021-09-22T17:22:11+00:00September 22, 2021|

Straight lines are a big deal in agriculture.  Everyone has seen the perfectly straight rows of trees in an orchard, or crops in a field.  These straight lines enable hundreds of tasks to be done mechanically, with tractors and equipment, instead by of hand.  For centuries, making perfectly straight lines was a fairly high-level skill.  On a small scale, builders would spend numerous hours "squaring" the lines for their construction project.  On a much [MORE ...]

Oven Roasted Green Bean and Potato Curry

2021-09-15T17:50:52+00:00September 15, 2021|

This dish is traditionally cooked on the stovetop, but in this recipe you move it into the oven. Using a sheetpan will mean less stirring but you can also use a large cast iron skillet. Trim 1/2 lb. Green Beans and cut into 2" pieces. Dice 1 lb. potatoes into small cubes -- this is important to ensure the potatoes get fully cooked without the beans getting overcooked. In a large bowl, combine 3 [MORE ...]

Whither the Peppers?

2021-09-15T17:24:08+00:00September 15, 2021|

At Terra Firma, roughly half our crops are planted using "starts" -- plants grown in growing medium in trays. We transplant these starts when they are 3-5 inches tall and 2-3 months old. There are many different reasons to use transplants instead of sowing seeds directly into the ground. It saves money on seed and gives the crops a leg up over weeds and bugs. It also allows the grower to provide more ideal [MORE ...]

Refrigerator Dill Pickles

2021-09-08T18:06:54+00:00September 8, 2021|

Painted Serpent Cukes work great in this recipe.  No sterilizing is necessary to make these pickles, although as their name implies, they will need to be refrigerated. You can add or subtract spices to your preference but make sure to use plenty of garlic. Also make sure to cook the brine in a stainless steel or coated pot that won't react with the acid in the vinegar.  This makes 2 quarts. In a small, [MORE ...]

Roasted Green Bean & Tomato Salad

2021-09-01T18:21:20+00:00September 1, 2021|

This is a dead-easy salad to make that is somehow still not a household staple.  The juices from the tomatoes, combined with the olive oil used in the cooking, provide most of the dressing you need.  You will likely find yourself mopping up any leftover juices with a piece of toast. Trim 1/2 lb. of Green Beans and cut into 1-2" pieces.  Transfer to a large cast iron skillet and drizzle with 2 T. [MORE ...]
