“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with Summer’s best of weather and Autumn’s best of cheer.”
–Helen Hunt Jackson
A couple of weeks ago, as I strolled through the farmers market, it occurred to me that we’ve hit the sweet spot of summer eating. Vendors booths were overflowing with tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes, mixed greens, beets, watermelon, along with a variety of squash and zucchini. The approach of fall couldn’t be missed as baskets of Gala apples, Golden Delicious and early pumpkins were spotted too.
