I am HORRIBLE at picking out avocados. I always get them either waaaay too green, or half rotten.

It drives me nuts.

Just a few more days and my avocado fast will be over.

I love your grocery shopping load! Mmmm, all that produce! And I love that so much of it is local. Good for you! I think shopping locally and buying organic are two of the best things you can do with your money.
