1 1/2 lbs Fuyu Persimmons

1 hd Fennel

½ lb Loose Spinach

1 hd Batavia Lettuce

1 bu Dino Kale

1 lb Cauliflower

1 lb French Fingerling Potatoes

1 lb Tokyo Turnips

 

Box Notes:

The Fuyu persimmons are grown by our neighbor Frank Espriella here in Guinda. They are not certified organic. He doesn’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides but opts to not be certified organic as he has a very small persimmon orchard. The Fuyu persimmon is eaten firm, like an apple, no need to peel the skin.

The rain has continued over the weekend. To date this rain season, we have received about 4 inches of rain, over ¼ of our annual average rainfall. The winter crops are thriving with the rain and the farm crew feels relieved to have a break from moving aluminum irrigation pipe. We hope the rain continues at a steady pace to replenish ground water supplies and fill surface water storage.

 

Special Order: Whole Hams for the Holidays

Place your order for whole or half hams by December 18, 2016 for delivery the week before Christmas. The hams are $10 per pound. They range in size from 4.5 – 6.2 lbs. Please contact the farm: csa@riverdogfarm.com or 530-796-3802 to place your order.

Box Notes:

The Fuyu persimmons are grown by our neighbor Frank Espriella here in Guinda. They are not certified organic. He doesn’t use synthetic fertilizers or pesticides but opts to not be certified organic as he has a very small persimmon orchard. Frank spent many years developing his orchard. He grew his own rootstock and grafted the fruiting wood onto the rootstock. The orchard is almost three decades old! The Fuyu persimmon is eaten firm, like an apple, no need to peel the skin. Another week of the Juliette tomatoes – they may be the last of the tomatoes this year. They are a plump cherry tomato that tastes great in a green lettuce salad.

Arugula is making its first appearance this fall in the veggie boxes. It is best used raw in a salad or in a sandwich. Here are a few sandwich recipes featuring arugula: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/chicken-arugula-and-red-bell-pepper-sandwiches-2237

Field Notes:

The greenhouses are full of fall goodies including: kales, chards, fennel, broccoli, cauliflower and lettuce. It is a time of seasonal transition on the farm which means quick turnover of fields from the finished crops to beautifully prepared beds for the new transplants coming out of the greenhouses. This field prep process includes: mowing the old crop down, turning in the organic matter (crop residue) with either a tractor mounted disc or rototiller, letting the plant material break down for a few days with the help of an irrigation set, then one more tractor pass to rototill and shape the beds, followed by a tractor pass to insert the transplants with our two-seeder transplanter or direct seed depending on the crop. We direct seed the beets, carrots, turnips, and winter squash.

Box Notes:

This week’s veggie box features the flavorful, last-of-the-season Fairtime peaches. This variety is a yellow-fleshed peach that is freestone meaning the flesh easily separates from the pit making it great for freezing, canning, and cobblers. The melon in your veggie box will be either a cantaloupe or an orange honeydew. September melons, along with tomatoes and peppers, tend to have the highest sugar content. There is only about a month left for purchasing canning tomatoes and pickling cucumbers. Get them while you can!

 

 

Field Notes:

We have completed the winter squash harvest. There are bins full of squash in storage waiting to go into the veggie boxes to stock your pantries during the winter months. The pepper and tomato harvests are winding down so we will continue to include these summer favorites in the veggie boxes until the first frost ends their production sometime in November. We are beginning to harvest the first of the fall crops including the fast growing Tokyo and Scarlet Queen Turnips. The turnips are delicious raw, eaten like an apple. They are also great braised, roasted, or added as a soup ingredient. The greens are wonderful too: steamed, sautéed, or braised with a dash of salt, olive oil and lemon juice or vinegar. Lettuce will be ready soon too.

We had a great time sampling tomatoes at the annual Yolo Land Trust event on Sunday September 11th. Over 400 people attended to taste the delicious food and farm produce samples prepared by chefs from the Sacramento/Davis and Bay Area regions. This annual event raises funds to preserve agricultural land with conservation easements in Yolo County. Thank you Yolo Land Trust for bringing together farmers, wineries, eaters and chefs under the canopy of a walnut orchard to celebrate the rich agricultural bounty of this region!

The greenhouses are full of fall and winter transplants: fennel, lettuce, kale, chard, broccoli, and cabbage. Some of the starts have already been transplanted; later plantings will soon go into the ground. We also recently planted garlic cloves for the spring and summer garlic crop. Fall potato plants are about 6 inches tall and will be harvested in late November. We do two potato plantings each year, one in March and one in August.
