The warm weather growing season is winding down and some of the region has seen its first frost but the fall greens are getting sweeter and livestock are fattening up on the lush fall growth, thanks to the long-awaited rain. The bounty of produce available at this time is amazing. Look for lots of lovely varieties of fall vegetables at your local farmers’ markets. And please stop by soon as many markets will finish for the season at the end of the month. It is the most colorful and flavorful part of the season – don’t miss it!
