The first official day of fall was met with highs in the 80s this week, and already we're thinking about pumpkins, baked apples, and warm soups (yes we know it's early, but we're sooo ready!). The start of fall means a new harvest season, so here's what you can expect to see in your Good Apple box over the next few months:
Greens: As the temperatures drop, we welcome the return of field-grown greens! We'll make sure you get plenty of your favorites as well as something new from time to time. Be on the lookout for kale, collards, swiss chard, spinach, salad mixes, lettuce, arugula, mizuna, endive, mustard, broccoli rabe, Asian greens, and more!
Fruit: You've probably already noticed the start of apples in your box, and you'll continue to see them throughout the fall and early winter. We'll mix it up with other fall fruits such as oranges, grapefruits, limes, pears, grapes, and persimmons.
Other seasonal fare: Thank goodness for broccoli, cabbage, onions, brussels sprouts, potatoes and sweet potatoes, squash (both summer and winter varieties), cauliflower, radishes, carrots, beets, cherry tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, white salad turnips, peas and pea tendrils, cilantro, kohlrabi, bok choy, and sooooo much more. Have a favorite that's not listed here? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see if we can make it happen!
