October is harvest season!
In October, in the North Temperature zone, the first frost happens, leaves change colors and the leaves fall. By that time, most of the birds would have left for the Southern hemisphere to protect themselves from cold weather. However, in the southern hemisphere, October’s weather is just like the northern hemisphere’s April weather. In October, farmers bring in the last of the fall crops and ship them to other parts of the U.S. and also, many apples are harvested.
Locally, Arizona has some of our own harvest crops. Celebrating 20 years, Prescott Farmers Market has two locations, Prescott and Chino Valley. The Prescott Farmers Market is a vital part of our local economy, the mission of Prescott Farmers Market is to support and expand local agriculture, cultivate a healthy community and increase access to affordable local food.
Make sure to get out and enjoy this wonderful harvest season and support our local farmers. You can go to theresadesoto.com for a community connection to find out what else is going on in our local communities!

“O suns and skies and clouds of June,

Ye cannot rival for one hour
October’s bright blue weather.”
