The basket this week did not disappoint – filled with wonderful Fall fruits and veggies, as well as a couple summer holdovers.   After a hectic month that included moving, I was more than ready to replenish our produce.  As we are still getting settled into our new home, I exercised a little self restraint (hard to believe, I know).  I contributed for a Conventional basket, as well as a case of Honeycrisp apples.  Love, love, love the Honeycrisps!
