"Solano crop value hits all-time high",

FAIRFIELD — Solano County agriculture had another record-breaking year in 2013 and walnuts once again led the way.
County agriculture production had a value of $348.2 million, according to the newly released 2013 Solano County Crop and Livestock report. The performance dropped the 2012 total of $343 million into second place.
The record-breaking year came despite some weather-related setbacks for some crops, county Agricultural Commissioner Jim Allan wrote to the Solano County Board of Supervisors.
“Overall low rainfall totals and late spring rains decreased production in grapes, walnuts and field crops,” Allan wrote.
The $343 million figure represents the price of the crops when sold by the farms and ranches. It does not reflect processing and other effects that agriculture has on the local economy.
Walnuts in 2013 had a total value of $55.4 million in Solano County, an increase of $8.6 million over 2012. There’s potential for still more growth. Assistant Agricultural Commissioner Simone Hardy said farmers are planting more walnuts and almonds in the Dixon area.
Cattle and calves came in second at $38.8 million, but fell almost $5 million from the 2012 value. A county report attributed this to a return to normal cow-calf operations after speculation in feeder calves.
Rounding out the top five, alfalfa had a value of $35.4 million, nursery products $35 million and tomatoes $29.7 million.
The crop in the top spot has shifted over the years. In 2009, Solano County’s No. 1 crop was tomatoes. In 2006, before the housing meltdown, nursery products led the way.
Crops listed in the crop report range from wheat to safflower to grapes to corn to watermelons.
“I like the fact we have so much diversity,” Hardy said.
The Solano County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation on the crop report on Tuesday. It meets at 9 a.m. in the county Government Center, 675 Texas St.
Agriculture is the top business in rural Solano County. Still, the county ranks toward the middle among California’s 58 counties in agricultural production. It can’t compete with Central Valley counties such as Fresno County, an agricultural powerhouse that has topped $6 billion in agricultural production.
“We’re not in the billion-dollar club,” Hardy said.
But Fresno County has about 2,800 square miles in agricultural production, compared to 636 square miles in Solano County. Fresno County overall is far bigger, covering about 6,000 square miles, compared to Solano County’s 909 square miles.
Solano County is a Bay Area agricultural powerhouse, though it trails the Napa County crop value of about $662 million and Sonoma County value of about $821 million.
Hardy said Solano County agriculture’s strengths include diversity and the number of farms that have been owned by local families for several generations. The county has freeway access, water, good soils and a Board of Supervisors dedicated to keeping agriculture viable, she said.


"Vallejo Admirals rally late to beat Stompers"
2014-06-08 from "Vallejo Times-Herald" daily newspaper [http://www.timesheraldonline.com/sports/ci_25925556/vallejo-admirals-rally-late-beat-stompers]:
The Vallejo Admirals scored three times in the seventh inning and upended the Sonoma Stompers, 5-4, in the finale of a Pacific Association series at Wilson Park.
Vallejo salvaged the final game of the series.

In the seventh, Trevor Nathanson singled home Brandon Williams and Carlos Martinez had an RBI single. The other run scored as a result of a Sonoma error.
In the fourth, Nick Boggun homered to give Vallejo a 2-1 lead before Sonoma eventually took a 4-2 lead into the late innings.
Martinez and Nathanson each had two hits for the Admirals, who improved to 4-2.
Joel Carranza was 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored for the Stompers (4-2). Will Scott suffered the loss.

"Pirate fest to welcome rogues, rapscallions"
2014-06-09 by Donna Beth Weilenman from the "Benicia Herald" newspaper [beniciaheraldonline.com/pirate-fest-to-welcome-rogues-rapscallions]:


"Woodstock icon salutes himself at Vallejo's Empress",
2014-06-05 by Richard Freedman from "Vallejo Times-Herald" [http://www.timesheraldonline.com/thearts/ci_25907091/woodstock-icon-salutes-himself-at-vallejos-empress]:
Country Joe McDonald has a weakness. It's not protest songs. Though he proved to be pretty good at that with Country Joe and The Fish during the Vietnam era.
No, the 72-year-old Berkeley resident's Kryptonite is ice cream. And, while Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia is up there — "That sure is good" — McDonald said he'll take on any flavor, any time.
"I'll eat any kind. I've never encountered any ice cream I wouldn't eat. When I was a kid, my dad made it. I love ice cream," he said. "I could lose five pounds if I stopped eating ice cream."
Heck, since he stopped drinking, the Woodstock icon needs some vice. In a 45-minute chat earlier this week, he proved his addiction definitely wasn't technology or anything close to pretentiousness. Not when he found his tongue, stuck it firmly in cheek, and announced he'll perform a "Country Joe Salutes Country Joe" June 22 at the Empress Theatre in Vallejo.
"None of my (five) kids play music, so none will be doing a tribute to me. And I don't think Sting will be doing a tribute to Country Joe," chuckled McDonald, admitting it's all "silly and stupid and funny."
Through an aching back, McDonald still gets out and plays, mostly for benefits.
He figures he's done 3,500 gigs, none as notable as the Woodstock appearance Aug. 15, 1969 when he and the Fish belted out "I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag" and its catchy "One, two three, what am I fighting for? Don't ask me, I don't give a damn, next stop is Vietnam ..."
Because Joe slipped a certain four-letter word into the tune, he and the band were actually paid to not perform on the Ed Sullivan Show after they were already booked.
Those were the days. Not that McDonald doesn't have his moments.
"I'm a little bit snarky. That's what people would say. I'm probably a nice guy. But I can be crabby," McDonald said.
Never a social butterfly away from performing, McDonald is at ease on stage, he said.
"I don't care what size of the audience," he said, admitting it "took a long time" before he got into a comfort zone talking to his fans.
"I felt reluctant to do that," he said. "But performing? I couldn't stop. I had an obsession with music."
There's really only been two downtimes when it came to playing, McDonald said: First, when Jerry Garcia died in 1995, and secondly when McDonald stopped drinking.
"That very day Jerry died, I told my wife, 'I'm not going to die on the road' and I put my guitars away and didn't play. And when I quit drinking, I stopped playing for a year."
Fortunately, a friend convinced McDonald to get back out there and play for fun "and I started playing again."
So, of his six guitars he owns, he'll take out his trusty Yamaha FG 150 given to him at Woodstock and tote it around, including his upcoming Vallejo gig. And that's a good thing, said Empress general manager Don Bassey.
"My impression of him as always been that he is a man of passion and compassion, a great storyteller and musician," said Bassey, who first caught McDonald's act in Grand Rapids, Mich., in 1970.
"It will be another thrill to see him again in our theater 44 years later," Bassey said. "Joe holds a permanent place in San Francisco rock history."
Rest on laurels? Not McDonald. He'll pack up the guitar and play on the moon if it was a cause that meant something to him.
"I do a lot of benefits," he said. "But I like to do things others won't do."
He recently did a fundraiser to stop the Oakland zoo from expanding. And another show to stop oak trees from being leveled for a Cal-Berkeley athletic facility "for a football team that cannot win a game in a stadium built on a fault line," mused McDonald. "The oak trees were lost and we lost the cause. I've played at a lot of lost causes."
Still, "I like to think globally and act locally," McDonald said, admitting he still carries an "anti-social thing."
"I don't want to put on a monkey suit and shmooze with Angelina Jolie. That creeps me out," he said.
Ditto for Facebook, "which I've never been able to figure out," McDonald said. "I forgot my password."
He also can do without Twitter. And Instagram.
McDonald laughed.
"I guess I have a bad attitude," he said.
Heck, added McDonald, he's still trying to grasp the concept of aviation.
"Most of my gigs involve air travel and I never, ever understood how planes could get in the air," he said. "I'm not a physics guy. I'm a musician."
As for some big Country Joe McDonald memorial when he finally goes, hey, said Joe, just cremate him.
"The cheapest thing possible," he said. "I'm not a big afterlife guy."


"North Bay Scene Setters: Local fashion takes root"
by Flora Tsapovsky from "Northbay Bohemian" weekly newspaper [http://www.bohemian.com/northbay/north-bay-scene-setters/Content?oid=2588224]:
While it doesn't have the size or support of the local food movement, the North Bay's local fashion scene is home to a growing coterie of designers.
"They're hiding, they're very scattered," says Andrea Kenner, a radiant fashionista herself.
Kenner, a Sonoma County native, is the owner of Tamarind, a new boutique at the Barlow in Sebastopol. After 10 years of designing ever-changing trends for fashion brands in New York City, Kenner needed to make a change.
"There was a feeling of pumping down so many things, like flipping hamburgers," she recalls. "Now I'm focusing on curating timeless pieces with a story behind them that are created in a slower process and are going to last forever."
Among Tamarind's selection of well-known luxury brands is a small selection of local accessory designers. The store carries leather bags by Chantel Garayalde, jewelry by Becky Kelso and Padé Vavra, and handcrafted scarves by A Curious Beast, all from Sonoma County.
Garayalde came back to Sonoma County in 2009 after stints in L.A and New York.
"Lately, I see more curiosity and sophistication in the local market," Garayalde says.
As a local designer, she feels less pressure compared to fast-paced Los Angeles. "There's so much talent here, even if we don't mold ourselves around trends," she says.
Kenner is determined to turn this miniature representation into a movement. To expand the local fashion community, Kenner and Santa Rosa designer Hilary Heaviside are creating a fashion "think tank" to exchange ideas and help grow the local scene.
When Kenner talks about her plans for Tamarind and the North Bay, a wishful question arises: While L.A is slowly becoming the cool, understated alternative to New York, could Northern California be next in line? Anything is possible, as the local fashion community currently leaves a lot to the imagination.
If lifestyle blogger Adrienne Shubin can't name a local fashion designer off the top of her head, what are the chances you can? Shubin, the vibrant woman behind therichlifeonabudget.com, a Kenwood-based blog, loves shopping—online and, alas, at Macy's.
"I feel badly that my go-to places are Macy's or Goodwill, as I miss out on handcrafted, special goods," she admits. "I'd love to help the community and shop local, be exposed to more designers."
Kenner is hoping to give local fashion that exposure at an all-local fashion event at the Sonoma County Museum. The event is being imagined as part fashion show and part exhibition.
"Innovative clothing and accessories design are a natural extension of the creative culture of this region, so it's a natural fit for the museum," says Diane Evans, the museum's executive director.
Meanwhile, Kenner is putting together her own fashion line.
"We'll see what comes out of the woodwork," she concludes with shy optimism.
Better fashionably late than never.


"Hyperlocal: When Peter Lowell's restaurant says local, they mean it"
by Stett Holbrook from "Northbay Bohemian" weekly newspaper
[http://www.bohemian.com/northbay/hyperlocal/Content?oid=2588232]:
Early this spring, there was a knock at my door. It was Lowell Sheldon, owner of Peter Lowell's restaurant in Sebastopol. He wanted to know if I would trade some of the lemons from my prolific backyard tree for a meal.
Of course I said yes. I couldn't use all the lemons, and there was something cool about sharing them with a local restaurant. While this winter's killer freeze put a big dent in my lemon crop, Sheldon was able to fill two five-gallon buckets. In return, I got a great breakfast. I felt like I played a small role in the lemon-curd tarts the restaurant made.
Turns out Sheldon sources a lot of his produce this way. Once he was out for a run and discovered a pineapple guava tree overloaded with fruit. Now he harvests some of the crop each year. He also barters for neighborhood figs, persimmons, quince, peaches, apples and other fruit.
Restaurants that tout their local and seasonal produce are now the norm. Defining local is a gray area, but not at Peter Lowell's. They are hyperlocal. They don't just serve produce from Sonoma County. The focus is on fruit, vegetables, fish and meat from western Sonoma County. Some of that comes from the numerous small-scale farms that dot the area. Some comes from Two Belly Acres, the restaurant's two-acre farm on Green Valley Road. And some comes from people like me, residents with a tree or bush that overflows with fruit once a year.
"During certain times of the year there is always going to be a glut of something," Sheldon says.
Now that the word is out about restaurant's west-of-101 sourcing, customers and local residents call when they have a surplus crop.
This gleaning started out as an economic necessity. When the restaurant opened in 2008, Sheldon's commitment to locally sourced ingredients proved costly. He grew up in Sebastopol and his family had several fruit trees. Why buy apples when he could harvest a few boxes from his mom's tree? Ditto bay leaves and lemons. In time, that neighborhood sourcing became part of the restaurant's business plan. While food costs are still high, chef Natalie Goble says seeking out neighborhood growers makes economic sense.
"There is a real sense of ownership and they also help us keep the doors open."
Of course there is a culinary benefit, too.
Goble waits for local tomatoes or blueberries to ripen to their "absolute best." The produce doesn't spend time in transit or in a distributor's refrigerated warehouse.
"We're letting the fruit or vegetable really shine," she says.
Fish and meat comes from local sources, too, but those are commercial suppliers. For legal and practical reasons, there aren't any backyard sources for beef or lamb. The restaurant also purchases some of its produce from local distributors, especially during the winter months.
There are challenges to the restaurant's über-local focus. Some diners are miffed when their burger doesn't come with a slice of tomato, even if they are available in warmer climates just a few miles to the east.
"The challenge is usually waiting," Goble says.
But it's food worth waiting for.
Peter Lowell's, 7385 Healdsburg Ave., Sebastopol. 707.829.1077.

Recipe: Cherry Almond Tart with Pineapple Guava Cream-
This tart recipe is a little tricky at first but once mastered it is easy and versatile. Substitute cherries for apricots, plums, raspberries, or Asian pears. The wetter the fruit the harder it can be so try to use dry dryer fruit.

Tart Shell
* 2.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour
* 2 sticks butter
* 1 cup sugar
* 3 whole eggs
* 1 pinch salt
In a food processor, add flour and butter and cut till relatively even. Add sugar and salt and pulse. Add eggs and pulse till evenly distributed but not overly mixed. Remove from food processor and divide into 2 halves shaped in discs. Wrap both tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 for 1 hour. Freeze the other for next time (up to 2 weeks)
Once thoroughly chilled remove and grate into flakes on course grater. Gently spread 1/2 in removable bottom tart pan and use plastic wrap to gently press into bottom of pan. Once evenly pressed spread remaining around the edges and press to make walls of tart. Once you are happy with its looks, bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove and gently compress bottom and sides with the back of a spoon without overly working. Let cool.

Almond Filling -
* 1 3/4 cup pulverized almonds
* 1 1/2 cup sugar
* 3 sticks unsalted, softened butter
* 3 eggs
Combine butter and sugar in kitchen aid mixer until creamy. Add pulverized almonds and continue to beat adding 1 egg at a time until filling is light and fluffy.

1 lb fresh cherries (pitted with with a pitter or by halving them) -
Pat cherries dry and spread in tart shell. Gently spread 1/2 of filling over cherries and bake at 300 for 40 minutes, checking after 25 minutes. Make sure to put foil or a baking sheet under because butter will leek out. Top should be hardened slightly having a light golden brown color. Remove and let cool for at least 1/2 hour. Use second half of tart filling with remaining tart shell within 2 weeks.
Serve seasonally with whip cream. We like to steep different flowers and our cream. In early summer pick Pinapple Guava Flowers, using spongy petals(taste them as they are delicious fresh). Steep 20 picked flours in 1 cup cream for 10 minutes. Let cool, chill and whip with a touch of sugar.
