Sonoma County Herb Exchange

Herb Exchange

April 7th and 20th

2-4pm at Laguna Farm.

The Herb Exchange is our neighbor on the farm.  You may have seen the little red barn beyond our wash-tanks.  This is the Herb Exchange.  They would like to invite you to see what they are all about.  At the same time, Laguna Farm will invite the folks picking up local herbs to come see how we grow!

March 10, 2015
“Would you do me a big favor…” is a phrase my sisters and I would use when we were asking something small of each other.  Little gestures are often meaningful and valuable, so it’s easy to ask…
    This morning we put a post on our Facebook page announcing our neighborhood drop-site locations and home delivery availability.  We continue to invite food lovers to come see Jill’s demo of pressure cooking (see side bar). I would love for this information to move through our community without the need for us to pay for the promotion or advertising. So my favor is clear (as all favors should be)
1.  Will you share our Facebook post?  It is anchored at the top and easy to find.
2.  Would you friend me on my personal page so I can easily invite you to our events?
Thanks!!  And as always, if there is anything we can do for you, just ask!

     Be Well,

Jennifer Branham

P.S. If you really want to help spread the good word, you could give us an honest review on Yelp, Facebook, and Google+.  Thank you so much if you are able and willing.  I wouldn’t ask if it wasn’t important!

Produce Box Contents:
Salad Mix, Spinach, Cauliflower, Green Garlic, Chard, Golden Potatoes and a funny looking lemon.

 

 

Green Garlic Pasta is an easy way to enjoy this early spring treat.  I identify it to the left because many folks often mistake it for leeks or spring onions.  Green garlic is the green shoot that nourishes the fragrant bulb.  If left to dry, this bulb becomes the cured garlic that you can find in the store year-round.  I look forward to having our garlic as a featured guest at the upcoming film festival.

 

Juice Box Contents:
Carrots, Beets, Spinach, Ginger, Celery, Apples, Chard.
Is it hot or is it cold?  I think of my juices as either warming and nourishing or cooling, thirst-quenching and refreshing.  Carrots, beets and ginger are warming while celery, chard and spinach are cooling.  Apples can go either way as with citrus.  Have you ever juiced carrots then add celery and apples?  How the juice changes when instead of celery you juice beet into the carrot/apple juice instead.  Taste is pleased with thoughtful combinations that consider the character of the blends.

From the Greenhouse:

Seeding seeding and more seeding is happening these days in the greenhouse.  We are so happy to see the early summer veggies sprout!  The basil above photo was taken two weeks ago before the frost.  These cuties lived, and will be in your produce box in early May.
