Rain!? What?! This year, man, what is going on?! I just went on a hike at my parent’s ranch and it literally looks like a rainforest! The ferns are GIANT! the redwoods have grown feet in a month and the stream orchids are in full bloom! How nice that everything got a little rinse and the dust is down. I’m looking forward to all the plump fruits and veggies after their little drink!

So many activities!

A screenshot from my Instagram page from way back. Stop growing up, children!

You know those days where so many things get in the way of your fun that it’s almost comical? So here we were on Sunday (the day of the week that both my husband and I have off from work…thus we must cram as many activities into daylight hours as possible) we head out for a surf check and I decide it’s a little big for my liking so we decide to kayak the creek. We go home, unload our longboards, load our boats and head up north. When we get there, the creek is too windy and we drive home. On the way home we decide to go mountain biking. When we get home we unload the kayaks and load the bikes. We arrive at our favorite biking spot and within 3 minutes, the chain on my husband’s bike snaps. I think the universe is telling us that we need to just chill today. So universe, you got it, were gonna just chill. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, see you at the market!  

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week:

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria 

1. Turkish Red lentil (red lentils, caramelized onion, lemon and mint) 

2. Creamy cauliflower 

I look forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars!  Also, If like to give a big Thank You to Jenny of Cambria for making the suggestion of adding Farro to the creamy carrot!  Many of you told me you enjoyed it that way! I’ll be sure to make plenty of batches without Farro too for those of you gluten free folks out there!  

Stream orchids

I could look at flowers all day. Somehow (even through I’ve recommended it to friends)  I have not been out to see the carrizo plane superbloom this year but today made up for it with one single blossom.

 The wild stream orchid. 

I. Can’t.  Even. 

It literally is so amazing that it gets it’s own paragraph. We were a little early this year and only one orchid was open but by next week their will be an entire north facing hillside in full orchid bloom on my parent’s ranch. You better believe I’ll be out there to see about THAT! 

Here’s what you will find at the soup booth this week: 

Monday in Baywood, Thursday in Morro Bay and Friday in Cambria: 

1. Tuscan White Bean

2. Vegan Posole ( hominy and tempeh in a red chili broth) 

I look  forward to seeing you guys and don’t forget your jars! 

Woaaaa spring!

Well, that was a rather winter-like storm smack in the middle of springtime! Thanks for coming out, Cambria! You guys rock!  Sounds like more rain is on the way but our vendors are loaded up with spring harvest (including purple octopus carrots from Pepper Creek Farm) so don’t miss out on account of a few raindrops!
