       Tosh and I have returned from our two week vacation.
As we begin October, the farm stand is gradually leaving
 summer fruits and vegetables behind. Sad to say, but gone are the peaches till May 2019.  We have a few figs, grapes, cucumbers, and squash.  We still have some plums, Bartlett pears, tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, okra, and eggplant.  This time of year offers several  varieties of Asian pears, D'anjou pears, brown fleshed persimmons, quince, jujube, Casselman plums, and apples.  We have a wonderful collection of winter squashes:  Delicata, Butternut, Red Kuri and Kabocha.
      Our newest item is Chestnuts.  I know it is not the holidays yet but if you love fresh chestnuts, we have a few from Sunnyslope Farm.

November 4, 2018, the first Sunday in November, we are doing a hands on hoshigaki workshop at the JCI in Gardena, CA.  If you are interested, please check out their web site:
