Updates for September 2017
September brings with it Spring and the ability to buy
locally, especially in the deep South where fresh strawberries are available in
Florida and Texas, followed by California. Cold weather crops, like spinach,
some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and
early onions being harvested in all but the colder regions. Many markets still
have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

Allens Farm Organic -
ORGANIC, cobnuts, but not a pick-your-own!
Telephone: 01732 812212 E-mail:
firstname.lastname@example.org. Mostly mail order cobnuts, not a wide
variety farm shop. Green Cobnuts have a unique taste, often
compared to fresh Coconut, by the middle to end of September
they turn GOLDEN and become sweet as the starch turns to sugar.
Golden Cobnuts are supplied without husks, there are approx. 25%
more nuts in a kilo of Golden Cobnuts, which explains the higher
price. (UPDATED: 03 April 2016, JBS)
