1 ½ lbs Fuyu Persimmons
(not certified organic)
1 bu Scarlet Queen Turnips
1 lb Baby Red Lettuce
1 ¼ lb French Fingerling Potatoes
¾ lb Mixed Sweet Peppers
2 Delicata Squash
1 bu Red Russian Kale
Box Notes: The fuyu persimmons are from Frank Espriella’s orchard in Guinda. We feature the persimmons every year that he has a good fruit set. They are not certified organic. He doesn’t use synthetic sprays or fertilizers but opts to not get certified as his operation is so small. The fuyu is the type of persimmon that is eaten when firm, like an apple.
Field Notes: The rain finally came! We received about 1 inch of rain. It was a glorious rain that cleared the thick smoke from the air and refreshed all the leaf surfaces of the plants making better conditions for respiration and photosynthesis.
