Tomorrow marks the end of yet another month. Geez, 2016, slow down a little. Don’t get me wrong, I am ELATED that it’s pumpkin and apple season, and won’t be sad to see the last of this year’s zucchini cleared out of my produce bins. But… is Halloween really just around the corner?! Here is what’s in season in my neck of the woods:

  • Apples
  • Arugula
  • Basil
