What's in season in October 2017, and other timely information:

Notes for October 2017: Apples are in season now, as are figs,  and Fall raspberries are in season now. Tomatoes are going strong, although the crop is way diminished in rainy areas like the southeast.  Both early apples, like Gala, and mid season like Delicious and Honeycrisp are in season!

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

And of course you can find pumpkin patches, corn mazes and Christmas tree farms, on our related websites.

 

We also have home canning, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page.
