What's in the box?
 
Week 2
Extended Fall,  2016
 
half shares
Apple Cider
Sweet Candy onions
Diakon radishes
 Field Trip pumpkin
Gold Rush Apples
Kale
 
 
 
 
Diakon Radishes are more like a turnip than a radish.  They are excellent roast - so sweet! 
 
The Field Trip Pumpkins are great decorations and when you are finished looking at them, they make great pumpkin pies, breads, etc. 
 
 Remember that if your apple cider begins to turn, you can always cook it to a boil and it will be sweet again.  You can also freeze the cider as well to save for a holiday.
