Dear CSA Members,
One of my favorite places on the farm to visit is our experimental garden which is nestled in-between the rows of citrus and blossoming peaches trees. It’s a calming and inspiring area that provides me with great joy and inspires creativity. All the planning and work the farm team did for the garden last year is now coming in to fruition. The Spanish Roja garlic, the French grey shallots, Caraflex cabbage, Fiero Radicchio are just some the produce coming into focus. Of all the beautiful crops that we grow in the garden, my current obsession is the favas.
2019 Spring Blossoms
It is another nail biting transition from winter to spring here in Brentwood. We always want as much rain as possible but late rains in the Bay Area always mean higher risk for brown rot. Read this week’s Note from Farmer Al to learn about what we’re doing to give our early stone fruit crops the best chance.

The wonderful blossom season has arrived in Brentwood so we thought it would be a great opportunity to share some of the beauty with our Bay Area CSA members!

Just did a review of orchard bloom, to evaluate brown rot risk in the face of this coming week's stormy weather. Meteorologists are predicting an "Atmospheric River" will dump up to 9" of rain in some areas of the North Bay.

In this week’s Farm Focus we take a tour of winter projects around the farm.
Autumn colors have returned to the farm and we are so thankful for the rain.
