I am very excited about the 2012 pistachio year on our farm. We are using a new automation system (the first and currently only of its kind in the US) that will allow us to turn our valves, pumps, and filters on and off automatically; it will also enable us to write schedules that should help our efficiency and our productivity. I have taken a few pictures that show a pole that transmits a signal above our canopy and another picture of the valve box.

I’m writing to you from sunny Southern California having just begun the 2012 Holiday Cup! This week our team is competing in a friendly set of games matching up against our old foe Canada, as well as Greece, and finally the current European Champions, Italy.

Pesto is a simple and versatile sauce that anyone can master. It can be used to toss with pasta, spooned over tomatoes for a simple salad or as a topping for meat, fish or poultry. I even like it as a sophisticated dip for fresh veggies.
