On Friday something weird happened. Ever wonder what happens to rotting fruit? Do you let it rot and throw it away, or are there other things to do with it?

Mr. Alpers asked Ms. Berryhill if she wanted some rotten Persimmons to feed her Chickens. Mr. Alpers, in the back of his house, has a persimmon tree that, because of the record rains last year, provided a bounty of persimmons that he was unable to use. She said “yes,” and Mr. Alpers was happy.

Mr. Alpers gave his Persimmons to Ms. Berryhill in a big container. Then, on the weekend, Ms. Berryhill fed her Chickens persimmons, making them happy, and really, really full.

Before San Jose was known as the Capitol of Silicon Valley, it was known as the Valley of Hearts Delight. It was known for its fruit trees, and these persimmons are proof that the valley soil is still rich for growing.

Below you will see the chickens feasting on the rotten persimmons.
