Good-bye Summer Harvest


Although the pumpkins, squash, gourds, and Indian corn are delightful in their own right, I dislike the end of the summer harvest season. Soon our downtown market will limit the days that it is open, getting ready for the cold season. The season I prefer is quite obvious; what time of year do you like the best?

  1. In a certain way, I think it's a good sign if certain products disappear from the market places when the season is over. I have today rather the feeling that you can buy any product at any season, meaning that they are more or less artifically produced or coming from far away, meaning that they have lost their real flavour. All seasons can be nice if you adapt your eating habits!

  2. I really love all the fresh fruits and veggies of summer but the cozy comfort foods of fall are pretty good too.
    Nice still life Kate.

  3. This selection looks delicious. I love the summer fruits especially watermelon, nectarines, strawberries, and avocados.

  4. I really love Autumn. But I mostly enjoy whatever season I'm living through.

    Naturally, I don't like walking/driving in ice and snow of Winter! But I love the cozy feeling of being inside, when it's snowing out. Etc. I can usually feel quite at home, in each season.

    And I really, really, really do need all _four_ seasons!

  5. You've somehow came up with a composition that a still life artist would be proud of.

    I like spring!

  6. Tasty post!
    SW Florida offers so little in terms of seasons - perennial summer.
    Mighigan autumn was always my favorite - I love the sights and smells and the holidays...

  7. Would you believe that tomato plants are still alive and growing around here? This morning a lovely Italian lady invited me to "help yourself and take as many as you want" from her North End garden.

    Autumn has always been my favorite season.

  10. I love all seasons, here in MC there is no much difference from one another, the weather gets cold and changes from December thru February. You can get almost any fruits and vegetables on winter. Great colorful post.

  11. the pictures are beautiful!!

    all seasons have their speciality - just as our lives - so I guess I enjoy them all. with globalization, pretty soon there will be no 'seasons' as the ability to ship everything to all the markets will be available. now, the quality of freshly picked produce can not be compared with those picked way ahead of their time and forced to ripen by chemicals during shipping....

  13. What a great photo of these vegetables, Kate. Makes me hungry in the middle of the night! I don't know that I have a favorite season--I like all of them here in Portland. I'm spoiled by the fresh fruits, berries, and veggies, though.

  14. This is Florida. We have pretty warm, and darn hot as our two seasons.

    I'm kinda partial to pretty warm rather than darn hot.
