Lagoona Kahuna Recap
Calsense Wins Again! 

The Calsense team had a wonderful time at Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation's second annual Lagoona Kahuna Team Challenge, where they defended their championship paddle! Calsense won the challenge by accumulating the most points from collecting trash and playing games such as blindfold cornhole, relay racing, and more. Highlights from the challenge included finding the largest piece of trash, which was an abandoned loveseat sofa. The team brought it across the lagoon by putting it on a paddleboard and towing it behind a kayak! (photos below)




There were tons of unique trash as well, such as car hub caps, unopened packaged firewood, and massive pipes. Calsense had so much fun playing games, including the team favorite, the relay - which is always a blast for both the participants and the people watching and cheering! A special thank you to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation for organizing such a fun and unique event that got our team outside having a great time, while also helping to maintain and clean up our local Lagoon!

Plant Features

This month we are sharing some ideas of things you can plant in October! Fall time is a great opportunity to start a garden and there are several options that are perfect for this time of year brought to you by the Sustainable Food Center.

  1. Root vegetables: Plant beets, radishes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, and rutabaga from seed this month. For a colorful harvest, try Golden, Bull’s Blood, and Chioggia beets and white, red, purple, and pink radish varieties. Carrots also come in a variety of colors, including yellow, maroon, and several shades of orange.
  2. Leafy greens and Brassicas: Lettuces, spinach, and Swiss chard can be planted from seed or from transplant this month. Plant members of the Brassica family, including broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, kohlrabi, and cauliflower, from transplant. Kale can also be planted from seed in October.
  3. Alliums: The allium family features strong-tasting veggies like onions, garlic, shallots, chives, and leeks. Besides spicing up savory dishes, alliums help deter pests from your garden.
  4. Peas: Plant sugar snap peas, snow peas, and garden peas from seed. Be sure to provide this vining plant with a sturdy trellis to climb, and enjoy its lovely blossoms. Harvest frequently to encourage plants to produce more peas.
  5. Artichoke: Save space for this large, dramatic member of the thistle family (which grows to a full size of 2-3 wide and 3-4 feet tall), and you won’t regret it! Plant artichokes from transplant in October, and harvest the large flower buds in early spring (you can also leave some buds to open into brilliant periwinkle blooms.

Calsense Cooking Corner 

Dairy and Egg Free Pumpkin Pie 
Pumpkin pie is a staple dessert for any holiday this fall season. Here you will find a recipe that doesn't use any eggs or dairy which also makes it environmentally friendly! 

Ingredients:

Directions:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a pie crust in a pie plate.
  • Add the canned pumpkin, coconut milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, salt and cornstarch to a blender and blend until very smooth. You may also simply whisk it together in a bowl until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a 9-inch pan lined with a pie crust. May use a vegan store bought vegan pie crust, my Easy Vegan Pie Crust, or this Gluten Free Pie Crust. I don't pre-cook the pie crust. Spread the mixture evenly with a spatula.
  • Bake for 1 hour. The middle will still look jiggly; that's normal. Let cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then cover and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • Slice and serve with Vegan Whipped Cream or store bought non-dairy whipped topping, if desired. Enjoy!
  • For the Pie Crust Leaves: These are totally optional for decoration. Make or buy an extra pie crust, and roll out the dough about 1/8th inch thick. Using leaf cookie cutters, cut into shapes. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
