Resetting the Immigration Debate

2021-01-20T18:19:17+00:00January 20, 2021|

By the time you read this, we will have a new President.  And in a break from the policies of his predecessor our new President Joe Biden today is announcing proposed legislation to provide a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S.  Many, if not most, are now and have always been "essential workers".  In particular, they feed our country:  tend, harvest and process our crops.  They prepare our [MORE ...]

Cooking Basics: Mirapoix

2021-01-20T18:17:54+00:00January 20, 2021|

With TFF's last Celery of the winter season in your boxes today, it's your last chance to make an all-TFF Mirapoix.  This vegetable medley is not a dish on its own, but rather is an essential part of hundreds of soups and stews, a preparation of aromatic vegetables that provides a solid foundation for the rest of the ingredients.  It takes some time to make it properly, as the vegetables must be sauteed together [MORE ...]

Spinach and Lentil Saute

This is a delicious, quick and filling dinner.  This recipe is minimally spiced, but it can easily be modified by into an Indian Curry by adding more spices, or into a soup by adding more broth. Clean and dice 1 or 2 Leeks to make 2 C.  Rinse 2-3 carrots and dice.  Mince 2 cloves of garlic. Soak 1/2 lb. of Spinach leaves in a bath of cold water.  Drain and repeat until the [MORE ...]

Some Positive News this Week

2021-01-13T18:41:39+00:00January 13, 2021|

Amidst all the bad news we've had since the start of 2021, I thought it might highlight a few positive trends that are unlikely to see much coverage in the press or on social media. First and foremost:  the vast majority of workers on farms in California got almost an 8% raise this year.  That the third raise in three years of more than 5%.  This raise is due mostly to California's annual mandated [MORE ...]

Lettuce Rolls with Tofu

2021-01-06T19:02:55+00:00January 6, 2021|

This recipe is a "mix and match", "assemble yourself" project that makes for a fun vegetarian/vegan family appetizer or a full meal for two people. Break one 12 oz. block of extra firm tofu into "crumbles".  Season with 1 T. soy sauce and 1 t. sesame oil or hot chili oil and let sit for half an hour. Clean 1 leek and thinly slice it in rounds.

Losing a Local Hero

2021-01-06T18:18:27+00:00January 6, 2021|

2020 was a year of enormous loss and tragedy for our country.  In December, we lost a local and state hero, lifetime farming advocate, and TFF subscriber:  Richard Rominger.  Rich was a Winters farmer who became a leader representing California agriculture first as State Secretary of Agriculture during Jerry Brown's first term, and then later at the federal level as a Deputy Secretary of Agriculture under Bill Clinton.  Later in his life, he became [MORE ...]

A Different Kind of Holiday Season

2020-12-22T17:58:12+00:00December 22, 2020|

For most people, the 2020 holiday season is playing out very differently than it does most years. Thousands of people -- whether patients or providers -- will be spending it in crowded hospitals away from their loved ones. Many others are out of work, struggling to pay the rent. Most people have drastically altered their normal plans for festivities and get-togethers, and will have to make due with gifts sent by mail, phone calls, [MORE ...]

Cut one Spaghetti Squash in half the short way.  Scoop out the seeds and seed pulp and discard.  Stand the two halves cut-side down on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 until they are very tender.

When will Farmworkers get the vaccine?

2020-12-16T21:24:14+00:00December 16, 2020|

The big news this week may have been the delivery of the first Covid vaccines, but we were also excited to get our first real rain at the farm. The rain wasn't much -- just over an inch -- but it was enough to settle the deep dust, clear the air, and provide sufficient water that we were able to turn off our irrigation pumps for the first time since March. This is the [MORE ...]

Countdown to 2021: Important Schedule Update

There's just a few weeks left in 2020, and I think we're all looking forward to giving it a shove out the door and into history. With most TFF subscribers and employees telling us they are planning on sheltering-in-place for the year-end holidays, we are cutting our annual "vacation" back by a week. We'll be taking just one week off from deliveries this year: the week of Dec. 28th. We will be making just [MORE ...]

Pablito’s Lemon-Mandarin Marmalade

2020-12-10T01:02:15+00:00December 9, 2020|

If you've never canned anything before, this is a relatively easy project to start with and I've included the instructions for doing it.  Having said that, the jam itself is a little trickier to make than some.  It's also a slow process because it's a pectin-free recipe, and the marmalade cooks for a very long time.  But once it begins to thicken, it will do so fairly quickly and needs to get canned before [MORE ...]

Fennel-Miso Noodles with Radish and Carrot

Soba noodles are stir-fried with caramelized fennel and leeks and topped with thinly sliced raw veggies. You can also serve this with marinated tofu, soft- or hard-boiled eggs, or other protein. Cut the stems off 1 fennel bulb. Drop the stems into a pot of water and bring to a boil.

Sweet Potato-Carrot Cake

2020-11-18T19:29:04+00:00November 18, 2020|

This dessert relies mostly on the natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes and carrots, with just a small amount of sweetener. Bake or microwave 1 medium sweet potato until soft.  Allow to cool, then cut in half and scoop out the pulp. Combine with 2 eggs, 1 t. vanilla extract and 1/4 C. sugar (or appropriate amount of other sweetener). Finely chop or grind 1/4 C. walnuts and combine in a bowl with:  1/4 [MORE ...]

A Thanksgiving Thank You

2020-11-18T18:53:34+00:00November 18, 2020|

2020 has been a terrible year for so many reasons that it's easy to imagine many people will have a hard time finding much to celebrate on Thanksgiving.  And in the twisted logic of this messed up year, that might not be such a bad thing, since Covid 19 seems to excel at spreading itself through celebration. At Terra Firma, next week will mark the first time since March that any of us will [MORE ...]

Carrot, Leek & Broccoli Stir Fry

2020-11-11T19:02:13+00:00November 11, 2020|

One trick to sauteing leeks is to cut them in thin strips, or "julienne".  This helps them cook faster without burning. Since you have to cut down vertically into each leek anyway to wash them, you can just cut each leek in half from top to bottom.  Then cut into 1-2" lengths and place them cut-side down on the cutting board.  Use a very sharp knife to make slices lengthwise. Cut the leaves and [MORE ...]

Let Us Grow Better Lettuce

2020-11-11T18:40:27+00:00November 11, 2020|

To celebrate the arrival of our first fall Lettuce in your boxes today, I'm going to do a deep dive into that vegetable. For decades, 100% of the lettuce consumed in the U.S. was "head lettuce": entire lettuce plants harvested by cutting at the root and sold that way. The most popular type by far was "Iceberg"; other types included Romaine, Red Leaf, and Green Leaf. As the 20th century drew to a close, [MORE ...]

Butternut Pudding

2020-11-04T18:47:18+00:00November 4, 2020|

This is a tasty and simple vegan and gluten-free dessert.  You can make a large batch using a whole squash, or use half your squash to make a savory dish and use the leftovers to make a small batch of the pudding. Cut 1 Butternut in half lengthwise and bake face down on a cookie sheet at 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes, until bubbling around the edges and very soft.  Allow to cool, then [MORE ...]

2020-10-28T17:40:26+00:00October 28, 2020|

This Portuguese winter-vegetable soup is traditionally made with linguica sausage, but in this vegetarian version I use the garlicky charred broccoli from last week's newsletter as a vegan flavor-enhancer.  Alternately you can use pork or vegan sausage. Cut the leaves off 1 medium or 2 small Leeks, then cut a slit down into the shank vertically.  Rinse all the layers well in running water.  Roughly chop the leeks. Heat 3 T. olive oil in [MORE ...]

The D-word

2020-10-28T20:04:22+00:00October 28, 2020|

With everything that is going on right now, most Californians can be forgiven for not noticing something that -- in any other year -- would be a huge story and major topic of conversation:  A large part of our state has experienced no rain since March. That in itself would not be alarming except for the fact that the same area received about half its normal rainfall last winter. Of course we've all been [MORE ...]

Seared Broccoli with Spinach and Garlic

2020-10-21T17:57:00+00:00October 21, 2020|

It's still been too hot up here lately to do much cooking inside.  I've been experimenting with using a cast-iron skillet on my grill to do high-heat cooking of vegetables.  For Broccoli in particular, I've found that intense bottom heat of the grill does a better job searing the broccoli than either my oven or my indoor stove. This is not a recipe for people who like their broccoli "lightly cooked".  You can add [MORE ...]

Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change is Everyone’s Problem

2020-10-28T20:05:36+00:00October 21, 2020|

For decades, any time the media discussed farming and climate change, agriculture was addressed as a culprit to be blamed for its contribution. This put farmers dealing with the daily realities of a changing climate on the defensive. Instead of helping us adapt to the challenges, it appeared likely that the government was going to force new regulations on us that would make it even harder to survive economically. Yesterday on NPR, I heard [MORE ...]

Kale Salad with Sweet Potato Croutons

2020-10-07T16:50:12+00:00October 7, 2020|

The Curly Kale in your boxes this week is ideal for marinated kale salad, as the leaves are both more tender and fluffier than other types of kale.  This salad does not need to be "massaged", but you do want to dress the leaves ten minutes or so before you finish putting the salad together.

2020-09-30T18:06:55+00:00September 30, 2020|

Both Brussels Sprouts and Green Beans benefit from being parboiled prior to sauteing.  It helps speed the cooking process while softening them up so they will better absorb the other flavors in the dish.  If you use a slotted spoon to remove them, you can use the same pot of water.

Adapting our CSA to Climate Change starts now

2020-10-29T01:08:30+00:00September 23, 2020|

While humanity spent twenty years denying, blaming, and arguing about how to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, climate change has arrived.   And we have spent almost no time planning for how we will adapt to the new reality. On our farm, we have been making small tweaks in response to ten years of individual weather events that, when put together like pieces of a puzzle, now provide a portrait of our new climate.  Mostly hotter [MORE ...]

Green Bean-Potato Salad with Crispy Leeks

2020-09-23T17:15:54+00:00September 23, 2020|

This no-mayo potato salad is delicious on its own, but the crispy leeks turn it into something really special.  Definitely worth the extra effort.  You can make the salad a day or longer in advance, but don't mix the leeks into it until you serve it as they will become soggy -- although still tasty. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.  Add 2 lbs. scrubbed whole potatoes. Preheat the oven [MORE ...]
