California's Organic Harvest
Organic Harvest Month is coming to a close, so we're looking back at the best of the season -- and forward towards fall's bounty.
The Organic Trade Association first named September "Organic Harvest Month" in 1992, as a way of promoting organic produce over conventional. Nineteen years later, they may be preaching to the choir, but it's still a nice reminder to shop thoughtfully. And to put up a gallery of beautiful local, organic produce.
Do you have any favorite organic farmers? ("Me" is a completely valid answer.)
