SAGE MOUNTAIN FARMS

When we think of farms, the images that come to mind are often romanticized scenes of people filling baskets with fresh-picked produce or seated around a rustic table for a meal. So you may be in for a bit of a shock when you get there, especially if you arrive during the day when most of the work is done. The heat, dust and terrain quickly let you know this is back-breaking work. Nonetheless, it is fun being on a farm and the flavor of freshly picked produce is something else altogether. Look out for the story in the winter issue of Edible San Diego which is out at the end of this month. http://www.facebook.com/ediblesandiego
