Persimmon Picking

In an attempt to go apple picking, we ended up picking persimmons instead. All of the apples at Gabriel’s Farm were already off of the trees since it was late in the season. I happen to love persimmons so we picked away and also bought 12 lbs of “cosmetically off” apples for $1/lb. Unlike our experience in Oregon, u-pick farms in California are not necessarily less expensive than buying the fruit already picked. In this case, it was actually more expensive since they make you buy a year membership for $35 if you want to pick your own fruit.  It was still nice to roam the farm, inspiring future food projects. Persimmon and apple everything for the days to come.

About Soup and the Clouds

I treasure the small adventures in life. Such as, listening to records, making jam from farmer's market produce, seeing new sites, eating the best tomato I've ever had, reading a good book, watching a film, appreciating a good font, going for a long bike ride or walking down a street I've never walked on before. The list goes on.
