The Fruits And Vegetables Of Fall

It’s official.  Fall is here.  The temperatures are turning cooler, the holidays are just around the corner, and so long are the days of fresh peaches and corn on the cob.  Yes, it’s a little sad, but I can’t think of anything better than autumn in New York (and no, I’m not referring to that horrible Richard Gere/Winona Ryder flick).  Maybe it’s because I’m an October baby or maybe it’s just because I’m a sucker for the smell of fall in the air, apple picking, fall harvest festivals, the turning of the leaves, pumpkin pie, and roasted root vegetables…

Below is a list of the gorgeous and colorful bounty fall provides us with.  It will not only keep you warm in the coming months, it will keep you eating in season, healthy, and loaded with nutrients.
