FRESH FROM THE FORGE

Recipe from the Garden

  • 1-Ingredient Frozen Persimmon Custard
  • For a no-sugar-added frosty treat, freeze ripe or overripe Fuyu or Hachiyas persimmons for 8 hours (or up to a month). To serve, lop off the tops with a serrated knife and spoon out the sweet, custard-like frozen fruit.

  • Do not forget to turn off your irrigation once the rain starts
  • Mulch beds with straw to increase soil temperature and reduce evaporation
  • Cover crop fruit trees with a fava bean, oat and vetch mix to add organic matter to your trees
