Beautiful lettuces, kale, Swiss chard, collards, mustard and arugula are nestled along side broccoli, beets, baby carrots, radishes, green onions, sweet potatoes, green beans and orchard apples. What an array of deliciousness! Keep your eye out for pecans in November. Don't miss out on any of these great fall flavors!
