Harvest Season is Here!
October is harvest season!
In the Georgian calendar, the calendar that most of the world uses, October is the tenth month of the year. In the early Roman calendars, it was actually the eighth month “octo” meaning eight, which is how it got its name. There have been 31 days in October ever since the time of the Roman emperor August. 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 three locations, Prescott, Prescott Valley 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. Remember you can always go to theresadesoto.com for a community connection to find out what else is going on in our local communities!
