Have an old TV or air conditioner you want to get rid of?  (They are much to heavy to be a spot saver.)  Mayor Menino and UMass Boston is sponsoring a free household electronics recycling event.  Stop by Saturday, September 29th (rain or shine) from 9am-3pm at the Bayside Expo Parking Lot (200 Mt. Vernon Street) with you old computers, televisions or any electronics and drop ’em off!  You’ll feel so much better and your helping to make Boston a little bit greener! 

It’s that time of year again.  The kids are back in school.  The air is just crisp enough to put on your favorite sweater and the urge to head out to the country and pick apples is overwhelming.  So venture out of Southie this week and pick yourself a bushel and peck of farm fresh apples.  Here are our picks for 5 Places To Pick Your Own Apples. ? https://caughtinsouthie.com/feature/5-places-pick-apples
