Bailey's Local Foods ordering still open for pickup on November 25

 message from Rachael:

We've been busy eating lots of pears this week. They are absolutely perfect as a quick snack and this morning we enjoyed a pan of pear clafoutis (it uses up a lot of eggs!) I ordered a flat by accident, but we'll order another flat for next Monday as we've enjoyed them so much! This might be the last week for grapes and plums, so get your fix while you can!

Hot Stuff
Have you ever heard of the Ghost Pepper? The Bhut Jolokia Peppers are supposedly the hottest ever and we have them in bags (and bushels!) from Mark Brubacher in addition to his habernero peppers for making the best hot sauce ever (you know you want to), Look for the Spanish onions and shallots he has grown and mesculn salad greens that he hopes to offer us throughout the winter!
