Depending on where you call home, late autumn may seem like a tricky time to find seasonal fruits and vegetables that are native to your area. But despite chilly temperatures, there’s still plenty of tasty, in-season produce that’s ripe for the picking.
To get better acquainted with the fruits and veggies that are seasonal in your state, why not try hosting a farm-to-table brunch with friends and family? Decorate with a bit of fall foliage, and gather around the table for farm-fresh fare that’s heavy on flavor but light on environmental impact. What better way to spend a crisp weekend morning?
