It’s harvest time. The produce sections of local markets and green grocers such as DeMartini Orchard in Los Altos are stocked with seasonal fruits and vegetables. My small backyard garden is bright with vegetables, while friends’ larger patches are absolutely bursting.
For anyone who enjoys cooking, September represents a playground of opportunities. Harvest time, whether you grow your own produce or shop at Los Altos’ and Mountain View’s farmers’ markets, is something to celebrate. I need only take a drive through local vineyards to feel what an exciting time of year it is. The neatly manicured vines are heavy with fruit, representing the culmination of the farmer’s collaboration with nature.
