Happy October, everyone!
If you’re trying to eat a diet consisting of fresh, local organic foods, you might be wondering wondering what’s in season in your area right now. The answer depends in part on where you live, and also on local weather and climate conditions — which change yearly. It’s impossible to predict exactly what will be ready for harvest and when, but there are a few things that are typically in season in various areas of the USA:
Seasonal Organic Fruits to Enjoy in the Month of October
- Grapefruits and Oro Blancos
- Pumpkins (You might think of a pumpkin as being a vegetable, but really, it’s a vine fruit.)
- Valencia oranges
- Grapes may still be available in some areas, although their availability tends to peak in September.
Seasonal Organic Vegetables to Enjoy in the Month of October
- Brussels sprouts
- Napa Cabbage
- Swiss chard
- Winter squash
Seasonal Organic Herbs and Spices to Enjoy in the Month of October
It all sounds delicious, don’t you think? I’m imagining some amazing organic meals that we could concoct if working with just this list of possibilities.
Thanks for visiting! Best wishes for a beautiful and bountiful October.
