Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed pumpkin products are popping up everywhere. One thing is for sure: I'm loving the trend! Act fast -- pumpkin is only in season from September through November, so start stocking your pantry now.
Whether in a tiny kitchen or an endless field of fruiting trees, you can still experience the familiar chords of every season strike through rituals with seasonal produce. You don't get the full experience of this from the largely hands-off ritual of dining out.
Typically, Mother Nature reveals herself one treasure at a time -- this year it is an explosion of near-simultaneous arrival. Every farmer is shaking his or her head, just wondering what lies ahead this season.
