  • Fresh fruit makes a great gift in any Christmas season

    We all have our favorite childhood memories of Christmas. It’s my favorite season of the year!

    Each Christmas, my mother and father would buy a bushel of apples and oranges. For lack of a better place to keep them, all of the fruit and Christmas candy was stored in their bedroom. Growing up on the farm, we did not have heat in the bedrooms. I can still remember opening the door and their entire bedroom was filled with the sweet fragrance of apples. I will never forget that feeling and the smells of that room as long as I live.
