What's in season in October 2020, and other timely information:

This page has a table below that tells when each fruit or vegetable is normally ready to be harvested in New Hampshire!  We also have a page with links to our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying  many fruits and vegetables.

dark green = available;      light green = sometimes / some farms;      White or gray = not usually available

The light green indicates light crops at the beginning or end of a season - dark green is when the bulk of the crop ripens and picking is best.
