Incredible Kamo Eggplant from out garden. These seeds were sent to us earlier this year by a friend in Kyoto!

Chef Yulanda has been working on getting our red and white wine vinegar project off the ground. We recently got in these oak barrels so we can age our own house-made wine vinegar and utilize bottles that might otherwise go to waste.

Mushroom Tour

Michelle, Anton and I made a field trip to Moss Landing to visit Far West Fungi. They run a world class operation growing over a dozen types of exotic mushrooms. We found lots of inspiration and have even started growing out own mushrooms in the Post Ranch greenhouse!

Araucana Chicks

A sneak peak at our new Araucana chicks - soon to join the Post Ranch flock! These little guys look like baby falcons and hopefully soon they will be laying blue eggs.

Heirloom Citrus from Big Sur Homestead

Joel harvested this interesting citrus from an abandoned homestead on the Big Sur South Coast. I really want to include these in our heirloom fruit tree library- they have a pale green color, almost white, with a structure similar to a mandarin and intense bergamot aroma. They are not nearly as sour or bitter as a bergamot and are wonderful eaten fresh off the tree.
