He might be further than you'd like to drive, but I can reccomend a pediatrician. Dr. Zaguli. He was my doctor growing up and my brother and cousin bring their kids to him and still love him. I can't speak to how he feels on vax bc my family (other than me) just follows doctor's orders. But he is a very experienced and kind doctor. He's all the way down in mira mesa - though I think he might have an office in Poway now. My family drives from Rancho Bernardo to see him.
I'm glad you're so excited! :-) I'm excited for you.

Our farm is JR Organics: http://www.jrorganicsfarm.com/
They are really great people, and great farmers. We've had a CSA membership with them for about 2 years and have really loved it. It's the second CSA we've had, we like them a lot better than the last, and comparing it to another farm some of my friends have used JR is my favorite. We pay something like $28/ week for the large box, it always comes with 11 different items (one item is actually 2 heads of lettuce), we pick up at a farmer's market and trade in our lettuce every week (we like pretty much all other greens for our salads), which is something most CSAs don't let you do. Also, we get fruit like avocados, apples, cherries, grapes, and raspberries, which is pretty unusual (in my limited experience) from a CSA. We never get inundated with a single item, which is why I stopped doing a different CSA. I have a family of four, we're vegan so we eat tons of fresh veggies, and I rarely buy any veggies beyond what's in our CSA box, besides potatoes and onions.
As I said, we live in the downtown area so can't really help with north county resources, but I'm sure you will find some great people up there!

I am living in Vista right now and get the Be Wise CSA...we get the large size (we're vegan too!!) and love it. We get a huge variety of foods....lots of fruit (today we got persimmons, plums, pears, avocados, grapes, tomatoes and apples) awesome veggies (lettuce mix, persian cucumbers, eggplant, butternut squash, carrots) and herbs (parsley, basil plant and cillantro). We pay $30 a week, and it is well worth it.
We love hiking in the Elfin Forest...It is by far my favorite place to hike in North County.
Instead of a ped we see Natasha Wolf, an AWESOME naturopath.
We also love Queen Califia's Magic Garden (and I'm sure you will really appreciate it, as an artist).
I play at the "Sketch Jam" at this gallery every so often.
Anyways, I think we'd be great friends . My husband and I are musicians and very much a part of the art scene. We should definitely have a play date when you move here (I have a 1 year old daughter)!
