We visited another beautiful farm today. Earthtrine Farm has fields in both Carpinteria and Ojai, and we were in Ojai today on a cold but sunny morning. The farm is sort of a Platonic ideal of what a California farm should be: rich soil, vibrant green plants all organically grown and a backdrop that includes citrus trees, oak trees, the mountains in the distance and the odd palm tree here and there for architectural emphasis. The farmer, BD, showed us around and had us munching on things like Persian cress, flowering bok choy and fenugreek. He also grows an amazing variety of vegetables, from fennel to rapini to fava beans and a huge variety of lettuce greens and herbs. You can find all this bounty at his stand at three farmers markets each week: Tuesday on State Street in Santa Barbara, Saturday in Santa Barbara and Sunday in Ojai.
