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 ...]

To-fajitas

2021-10-13T17:49:30+00:00October 13, 2021|

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. Make the fajita seasoning:  In a small bowl, combine 4 t. chile powder, 2 t. paprika or smoked paprika, 2 t. cumin, 1 t. onion power, 1 t. garlic powder, 1 t. salt, and [MORE ...]

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

2021-10-06T17:06:51+00:00October 6, 2021|

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 ...]

Focusing on our CSA for the Future

2021-09-08T17:51:37+00:00September 8, 2021|

Staring out into the future right now can feel like driving in a rainstorm and trying to see out the windshield.  It's not just the raindrops continuously hitting the glass -- the daily, weekly and monthly events confronting the world right now -- but also the windshield wipers on high speed trying to keep the window clear.  You get a clear glimpse of the landscape, but by the time the windshield clears again, everything [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 ...]

New Month, New Stuff

2021-09-01T18:06:53+00:00September 1, 2021|

It was 100 degrees here yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that too.  But we're going to continue the Fall theme this week with a few new items in your boxes that signal the direction we'll be going in the next month or two.

Babanoush (Roasted Eggplant Dip)

2021-08-25T18:16:28+00:00August 25, 2021|

This classic Middle-Eastern dip is lighter and smokier than it's cousin Hummus, but is simple and quick to prepare.  And it's one of the few recipes I know of where overcooking the vegetables makes it better.  You can roast the eggplant ahead of time and then make the dip within 2-3 days. Roast 1 lb. whole eggplants in an oven at 350 on a baking sheet, or directly on a grill set to medium.  [MORE ...]

Fauxll is Here

2021-08-25T17:40:42+00:00August 25, 2021|

We're having our first fall weather here at Terra Firma, or as I like to call it, "Fauxll". Late August often brings us a respite from the intense heat of summer, but it almost always returns in September -- sometimes with a vengeance. We are taking advantage of the nice weather to plant our 2021-22 strawberry crop. Strawberries are planted as "crowns", a mass of roots with just one or two leafs still attached. [MORE ...]

Beet Salad with Feta & Pickled Red Onions

2021-08-18T17:42:38+00:00August 18, 2021|

This recipe features beets roasted in slices, which gives them a meatier, chewier texture.  If you prefer beets soft and velvety, you can just steam or boil them first and then peel and slice. Scrub 1 lb. of Beets.  Cut into 1/4" thick rounds (no need to peel) and then arrange on a well-oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast the beets at 350 degrees until they are lightly browned on the [MORE ...]

Falafel Salad with Tahini Dressing

2021-08-11T18:23:02+00:00August 11, 2021|

I love falafel but as a sandwich in a pita it tends to get very messy very quickly. This recipe keeps the mess contained and lets you really load up on the delicious tahini dressing. I don't use boxed "dry mixes" often, but some of the organic falafel mixes are really tasty and easy to prepare. Mix together 2 C. Falafel mix with 3/4 C. water and let sit for 45 minutes.

It’s Always a Good Time for CSA — especially now

2021-08-11T17:57:14+00:00August 11, 2021|

It's hard not to read the news this week -- Covid resurging, giant fires burning across the west, and a worsening drought -- without a strong sense of deja vu.  And without the politicking of last year's presidential election to obscure the lens through which we view the issues, they seem much clearer:  humanity is facing multiple crises that it is structurally disadvantaged at solving. Throughout the pandemic, there has been a strong urge [MORE ...]

Wells are for Water, not for Wishes

2021-08-04T17:56:54+00:00August 4, 2021|

I was at the gas station in town the other day when one of our neighbors -- a farmer named Bill who grows vegetables that he sells at farmers markets -- approached and asked me "how are your wells holding up?".  Turns out that his well has been producing less and less water, and had finally ran dry entirely.  I was not surprised, given the historic drought. All over the state, cities, municipalities and [MORE ...]

Teriyaki Veggie Kabobs with Tofu

2021-08-04T16:59:10+00:00August 4, 2021|

This vegan recipe makes grilling vegetables easy. Assembling them is a bit of work, but can be done in advance or as a fun kid activity (just make sure the skewers aren't too sharp). The longer you marinate the skewers, the more flavorful they will be.  You will need 8 or more skewers to make this recipe. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 C. tamari soy sauce, 2 t. sesame oil, 1 t. black [MORE ...]

Pickup Truck Kitten

2021-07-28T18:57:42+00:00July 28, 2021|

There's a "boneyard" out behind our farm shop -- the area where we fix tractors and repair machinery. To most people, it looks like a pile of junk, but to a farmer it is pure treasure: piles of metal objects of various shapes and sizes that can be cut and shaped into new uses. On Saturday afternoon I was perusing the boneyard for a particular size piece of metal for a planter I was [MORE ...]

Panzanella with Grilled Zucchini

2021-07-21T18:13:12+00:00July 21, 2021|

There are few better ways to use a bunch of juicy, ripe summer tomatoes than this Italian salad using toasted bread to soak up delicious juices.  In addition to the dried bread, this recipe includes grilled zucchini which will also soak up the tomato juices.  You can also add things like olives, sliced cucumbers, or fresh mozarella. Heat the oven to 300.  Heat the grill. Cut a crusty loaf of bread into bite-size cubes [MORE ...]

The Tomato Edition

2021-07-21T17:09:30+00:00July 21, 2021|

When we started growing "heirloom tomatoes" at Terra Firma back in the 1990s, we were among a small group of growers seeking a market niche in a landscape of mostly inedible supermarket tomatoes. It was extremely challenging to make a living growing varieties bred by backyard gardeners who were mostly interested in flavor. Most of the heirlooms available back then yielded poorly and were heavily damaged when packed in the same manner as commercial [MORE ...]

Silky Zucchini Soup

2021-07-14T17:18:29+00:00July 14, 2021|

This summer soup recipe is for subscribers who live where it's cold and foggy.  Zucchini is a much more versatile vegetable than many people give it credit for.  This recipe uses it to achieve a creamy consistency, without any cream. Trim 1 lb. of zucchini.  Slice them in half lengthwise, then cut in 1/4" thick half rounds. Finely chop 1 onion to make 1 C.  Mince 1 clove of garlic. Core 1 medium sized [MORE ...]

Stuck in the Middle

2021-07-14T17:20:02+00:00July 14, 2021|

If you live west of the Carquinez Strait, you may have heard rumors about a number of intense heatwaves impacting areas away from the coast. Even normally cool places like Tahoe have been hot, and the Pacific Northwest went through an off-the-charts event that killed hundreds of people and did tremendous ecological damage including massive wildfires. One thing that climate change is revealing is that the areas least prepared for intense heat can no [MORE ...]

Chile-Lime Hummus with Roasted Corn

2021-07-07T17:51:43+00:00July 7, 2021|

Hummus is a great accompaniment to many of our summer crops, including tomatoes and cucumbers.  But, it can be a little dry and dense.  This recipe combines Cannellini beans with roasted corn and lime aoili to make a lighter version with a kick.  If you don't have a grill you can saute the corn kernels in a little oil before blending. Soak 3 ears of corn (in their husks) in a basin of water [MORE ...]

Grumpy Farmers and Summer Holidays

2021-07-07T17:53:06+00:00July 7, 2021|

In last week's newsletter I discussed the complications of getting a particular crop to market for a holiday that creates extra demand for that crop. But holidays, particularly 3-day weekends in the summer, cause all kinds of other problems for farmers who grow fresh produce. Like many other businesses -- stores, amusement parks, restaurants, hotels, etc. -- we are actually busier for the holiday. Our crops don't stop growing and our employees don't get [MORE ...]

2021-06-30T16:14:15+00:00June 30, 2021|

About as close to a desert salad as you will find, this recipe adds red onion and spicy arugula to contrast the sweetness of the other ingredients.  In the recipe, the corn is roasted but you can also use it raw. Remove the tassels from 2 ears of corn as well as any hanging leaves.  Soak for 10 minutes in water. Thinly slice red onion to make 1/2 C.  Marinate the onions in 3 [MORE ...]

Capre-Ze Salad

2021-06-23T17:55:01+00:00June 23, 2021|

This is a Tomato-fresh mozarella salad with thinly sliced, marinated and grilled zucchini.  Grilling the zucchini in very thin strips increases the amount of surface area, which prevents the squash from steaming inside and getting mushy.  When it is done cooking, the texture is both crisp and tender -- balancing out the softness of the tomatoes and cheese.  You may be surprised how long the zucchini takes to cook. Use a mandolin or very [MORE ...]

Agriculture is an Octopus

Hiding indoors from the extreme heat this weekend, I watched a documentary entitled "My Octopus Teacher" -- a wonderfully up close look at the daily life of this unique creature. The octopus reminded me a bit of agriculture, its tentacles operating semi-independently of each other but still connected to the ever-adapting body. As the drought in the Western U.S. receives more attention, the number of posts in the media and social media addressing "problem" [MORE ...]
