The days are getting shorter and the temperature can be hot. September is the hottest month of the year at our farm. It is also fire season, so smoke sometimes hangs in the air and gives everything a golden glow.
Things that we expect to have available for u-picking in September include the following:
Autumn berries, apples, Chilean guavas, Emeryville pink grapes, tomatoes, beets, sweet peppers, mild hot peppers, fiery hot red manzano peppers, rhubarb, squashes, a few figs, cucumbers, horseradish, lemon verbena, mints, and oregano.
