Me and dad, 1982, Los Osos

How nice of the weather to only rain at night so we could enjoy the weekend, don’tcha think? There’s just something about spring that gets me motivated to organize, tidy up and just shift gears in general. I’m looking forward to how this translates to soup varieties in the upcoming weeks as new crops get harvested and our seasonal farmers return to market.

Farming in February 


Last Friday, I did an instagram post on how it’s tough being a farmer in February. The response from the farmers confirmed my observation and even prompted a few farmers to make pleas of their own. 

I’m sure I’m “preaching to the choir” here stressing the importance of supporting our local farming community because, if you are reading this blog, it’s likely you are doing just that….buuut…now, more than ever, it’s time to get preachy with your friends about shopping at our markets rain or shine. Our local farms are struggling. Big time. 
In this time of uncertainties and feeling out of control, you can control one thing: where you buy your lettuce. It’s that simple. THANK YOU to those of you who come out each week despite the weather. You are a freakin’ hero. You are. 

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

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

1. Roasted Butternut Lentil

2. Winter Vegetable Minestrone 

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