Winter has come early and with a fury here to a “weather-less” land of So Cal.
What a week… hurricane force winds… now bitter cold. Poor salad greens which were first blow- dried are now freeze- dried.
Thanks to everyone for their concern, wishes and donations from EM and JA . We are extremely grateful and counting our blessings as we were spared any heavy damage. We had a ton of cleanup to do – picking up all the debris. More than 750 trees downed in Pasadena and over 40 homes destroyed. Some folks are still without power and water. We had a friend stop by yesterday to use our computer as he and his family are, after four days, still waiting for power to be restored.
So we are VERY VERY thankful. We may be out of the salad & leafy green business for a while though we still have our home sweet home. Of course, this minor disaster made us feel so blessed that we live in an old house. Not only that, but we also did some “prepping” and had food, water and emergency supplies in stock.

The clean up will take months. Local flora prides such as the LA Arboretum will be closed indefinitely as they estimate that over 50% of the trees are gone or damaged. Sad to see such majestic trees toppled.
The Front Porch Farm Stand has been clean up from all the debris and is still open, so please come out and support local foods and farms or purchase homestead supplies online
This setback means we REALLY need your continued support (there are certainly other food goods that you can purchase!) more than ever to keep our farm stand and supply going and growing for another year.
Coming soon… harvest tally totals and another giveaway!
