Lemon Risotto with Asparagus, Chard and Spring Onions

2022-03-30T16:22:34+00:00March 30, 2022|

This is a very simple risotto that gets topped with quickly sauteed or stir-fried vegetables. For the risotto: Bring 6 C. of vegetable or mushroom broth to a simmer. Clean and chop 3-4 Spring onions. Separate the greens from the white parts. In a separate saucepan, toast 1 C. arborio rice in 2 T. olive oil over medium-low heat until translucent. Add 1/2 C. white wine or broth and stir until it is absorbed. [MORE ...]

Spring, Exposed!

2022-03-23T18:04:19+00:00March 23, 2022|

Spring is a season of hope and promise, but historically, it has also been a time of scarce food supplies, hunger and even starvation.  Last week I wrote about how fossil-fuel powered shipping allowed perishable food to be shipped from areas of abundance to places without.  But for most of human history, people outside the tropics relied on crops harvested in the fall and for stored through winter and early spring.  When those supplies [MORE ...]

Beet Brownies

2022-03-23T18:01:21+00:00March 23, 2022|

The cooked beets add moisture and color to the brownies while also dramatically increasing their nutritional content.  Still plenty of calories though. Puree peeled, cooked beets to make 1 C. Melt 1 C. of salted butter.  Add 3/4 C. unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 1/4 C. granulated sugar to combine. Meanwhile, beat 2 eggs with a hand or stationary blender for 2 minutes, until frothy.

Irish Potatoes and Cabbage with Leeks (Colcannon)

2022-03-16T17:25:56+00:00March 16, 2022|

I grew up eating my Irish-born grandmother's corned beef and cabbage, and must confess that I am not a fan of either the meat or the mushy cabbage.  For me, this is a better alternative for St. Patrick's Day and it's vegetarian to boot.  This is dish can be called "homey" or "comfort food", but can easily be jazzed up serving it with something completely non-Irish like salsa or tabasco sauce. Scrub 2 lbs. [MORE ...]

Beware of Flying Asparagus

2022-03-16T16:46:47+00:00March 16, 2022|

Asparagus grows all over in the world in temperate areas, including most of the continental U.S.  It's a perennial crop that starts producing when spring arrives, pushing up spears when the soil starts to warm (and the ground thaws, in places with cold winters).  Once summer arrives, the spears get tough and chewy, and the season ends.  Historically it was only available for a few months in any given area, during a time when [MORE ...]

The Perils of Fake Spring

2022-03-09T18:50:41+00:00March 9, 2022|

February 2022, aka "Fakeout February", was a great example of how careful farmers have to be to avoid getting suckered by the weather.  That's always been true but it's becoming even more important as climate change strengthens its grip.  The record-setting warm temperatures early in the month tricked fruit and nut trees into bloom, only to be followed by record-setting cold that wiped out the crops. In the case of trees already planted in [MORE ...]

Spaghetti Squash Salad

2022-03-09T17:37:18+00:00March 9, 2022|

This is an Asian-style pasta salad made with spaghetti squash instead of noodles. Cut one Spaghetti squash in half around it's "waist".  Bake at 400 degrees until the squash can easily pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Mince Spring Onions (whites and greens) to make 1 C.  Toss with the juice of 1/2 lemon and allow to steep. Use a fork to remove the cooked squash from the [MORE ...]

Vegetarian Bubble ‘n Squeak

2022-03-02T19:06:29+00:00March 2, 2022|

A vegetarian, oven-based version of the traditional Irish recipe of potatoes and kale with lots of sharp cheddar.  The "squeak" in this case comes from the sound the kale leaves make when you're preparing them, and the "bubble" comes from the cheese. Heat the oven to 400. Wash and dice 2 lbs. of potatoes (preferably red, but yellow are fine too). Toss the potatoes in a large cast iron skillet with 1/2 t. salt [MORE ...]

The Answer to Last Week’s Question is:

2022-03-02T18:54:47+00:00March 2, 2022|

Last week's newsletter was titled "How Cold is Too Cold?".  Well, this week we know.  The answer is "24 degrees". We've been growing apricots and peaches at Terra Firma for over 30 years.  In that time, we've never seen a freeze destroy the crop.  Older farmers had told stories about it happening so I've always known it was a possibility.  And we've had plenty of close calls.  But this time was different. Last Wednesday [MORE ...]

How Cold is “Too Cold”

2022-02-23T16:20:00+00:00February 23, 2022|

One of the head scratchers that climate change brings is that despite overall temperatures rising, some daily low temperatures in the winter are actually getting colder in California.  That is especially true in drought years: clouds and precipitation (both rain and snow) actually keep the air warmer than it might be otherwise at night.  Water falling from the sky can't get much colder than 32 degrees.  And the wind that normally accompanies storms stirs [MORE ...]

2022-02-16T18:11:23+00:00February 16, 2022|

This is a quick weeknight recipe that relies on the charred goodness of the roasted broccoli add flavor to the tomato-white bean combo. Preheat the oven to 400. Separate the stems and florets of 1 bunch of Broccoli.  Cut the florets into small pieces.  Peel the stems and then cut into strips.

When is Organic not Organic?

2022-02-16T17:52:09+00:00February 16, 2022|

Two news stories jumped out at me this week on Monday morning.  The first, from the New York Times, was a story on organic cotton production in India and the likelihood that much of it is fradulent.  The second was the news that the USDA just banned the importation of all Mexican avocados (including organic ones) due to U.S. safety inspectors receiving death threats -- the industry is largely controlled by drug cartels now.

Testing, Testing, Tetsu

2022-02-09T18:20:58+00:00February 9, 2022|

We are always on the lookout at Terra Firma for some new vegetable that meets our criteria for addition to the team. Of course it has to grow well here, taste good, and offer value to our CSA subscribers. Variety is nice, but not if it sits in your fridge or on your counter and doesn't get eaten. Seed catalogs are full of items that don't meet these standards. The best example is the [MORE ...]

Sesame-Soy Chard Salad

2022-02-02T19:23:32+00:00February 2, 2022|

The chard is sauteed first, then dressed with a soy-sesame sauce.  You can serve this salad warm or cold. Remove the stems from 1 bunch of Chard and wash them.  Trim off the ends on each side and then finely chop the stems to make 1 C.  Discard the rest. Soak and drain the chard leaves, then shake them dry -- you want them a little wet.  Roughly chop. Finely minced 3-4 cloves of [MORE ...]

Spud Planting Time

2022-02-02T18:37:33+00:00February 2, 2022|

When I first interviewed to work at Terra Firma back early February of 1993, it was a warm sunny day and the crew was planting potatoes. It had been a pretty wet winter, and the ground was still muddy and cold. A week later, when I showed up for my first day of work, it started to rain and didn't stop much for a month. The potatoes never had a chance to sprout, and [MORE ...]

Kale Salad with Walnuts and Butternut

2022-01-26T18:27:55+00:00January 26, 2022|

This raw kale salad uses Lemon Juice to "marinate" or "cook" the leaves to tenderize them while infusing them with more flavor. The butternut is diced and roasted to make crunchy and tender "croutons". Make a dressing with the juice of 1 lemon and an equal amount  of olive oil.  Whisk in 1/2 t. salt.  Press 1 large peeled clove of garlic and add to the marinade.  Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Cut [MORE ...]

Omicron Staffing Shortages & TFF

2022-01-26T18:10:44+00:00January 26, 2022|

Right now, it seems that just about every employer is experiencing staffing shortages.  For most of them, it's a new experience.  But for many farmers, it's hard to even remember a time when they weren't short-staffed.  Farm work has never been a popular occupation during my lifetime, and it's safe to say it's gotten even less so in the last ten years.  A majority of ag workers in California are legal citizens of Mexico, [MORE ...]

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 ...]

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 ...]
