Week of Feb 26th

We are hitting the end of the season for our tangerines. It’s such a pleasure using local fruit. No stickers or packaging is used to get these to you. While I’ve really enjoyed those bites of sunshine, it’s always a sweet sign that spring is on the horizon. Peach trees are blossoming and i’m starting to see bright red berries in the strawberry fields. Sugar snap pea sprouts are pushing their way through the soil and zucchini is on the horizon. In the mean time our CSA box still very much reflects what was planted 3 months ago for the winter season. Follow us @somethinggoodorganics on Instagram to see all the ways you can use a head of cabbage. I’ve notice when cabbage is chopped very finely it becomes sweeter to the taste. When it’s roasted it almost melts in your mouth. And making Sauerkraut can add so much gut health and additional vitamins to your diet. Its abundant on the farm right now and at it’s peak.
If you pick up at our farm in Buellton you will have noticed the mess at the fridge. That’s 300+ fruit trees being planted here. Soon we will be giving fruit tours and most likely start up a fruit box for the CSA. Sick of buying canned beans, my husband is also experimenting with a variety of common and heritage beans. Hoping to be able to offer those for sale at some point in the future.
The chickens have started laying eggs in full swing again so we are opening up our egg subscriptions. Add a weekly or bi-weekly dozen eggs in your box. Just log into your account, click on the “change” button next to your subscription and follow the prompts.

Week for February 5th

It’s been quiet on the farm lately. Temperatures dipping down into freezing temperatures the next few days will for sure kill what’s left of the tomatoes on the vine here in Buellton. Here’s hoping that our sacred tomatoes in Goleta survive the freeze for our boxes this week.
We are anticipating our fruit tree delivery this week which will add about 350 more apple, pear, peach and apricots (of all varieties) to our orchard. We’ve come to realize that fruit is just a great addition to our CSA boxes and we want a bigger organic variety to offer. While we look into new chicks for our chicken flock and cleaning out and reorganizing things, the seeds of spring are being planted.
