Every Wednesday since the beginning of July, I’ve headed to a local organic farm where I belong to a Community Supported Agriculture program and picked up a box of fabulous, fresh veggies. We’ve feasted on fresh greens, tomatoes, squash and more this season. Oh, sweet joy. I’ll be so sad when the CSA is over, but thankfully I have stored many veggies for wintertime.

This week’s basket was overflowing with goodies. Tomatoes galore, corn, potatoes, eggplant, greens and several large delicious apples.

Apples are one of those fabulous signs that fall is here. The season is ushered in with cooler temperatures, and lingers until just about when we light the pumpkins on the front porch. I can hardly wait to head out and pick apples with the kids, a tradition we’ve upheld for years.
