Stone Fruit Season and Hailstorms

April 20th, 2012 by

As we turned the corner on Easter weekend, Spring was rolling right along in California. Sunny skies, warming temps., trees putting on green tender foliage, fruit size increasing, and all was well. THEN, the skies opened and unleashed a hail storm like no other (well, Texas might have had it worse …4 FEET of hail!). Falling from the sky, hail the size of nickels bruised trees, ripped off new shoots and leaves, and pummeled new green fruit to the ground!

Stone fruit season in CA is going to be quite interesting. Not ALL stone fruit was affected in CA, but with this kind of an isolated impact the entire industry will be affected; Organic and Conventional.

Check out the link below for further information.

Staff Pick: Wayfare

February 4th, 2012 by

“We Can’t Say It’s Cheese”
Recommended by Teresa, Front End (Sept. 2011)
“Yes! This is a great treat for all, but especially those of us who try to stay away from dairy and soy. It comes in three flavors, and all are great. I’ve been craving a good dip and here it is! It’s also great as a cheese sauce over stuffed bell peppers with rice or melted over chips for great nachos! Who thought a cheese spread could make you so happy?!”
Located in the refrigerated section (above hummus)
