Persimmon harvest begins

6 Jul

Well, the birds started early but I caught up with them before they took all the ripe persimmons. Over the next week I’ll work hard on sharing the dark purple fruit with my dye pot & the birds. Last year’s gold came from the green and purple blush fruit. This year I’ll experiment with the dark ripened fruit alone to test that color.

    Heh, go to Kay Faulkner’s blog and see what she did the past few months with the persimmons from Australia!
