With summer coming to a close, so many of the fruits and vegetables abundant in mid-summer are gone, or at least well on their way out. . . .

These signs of passing summer always make me a little sad. And so, when I am in our garden or at the farmers’ market in September, I am thankful to be reminded that even amidst the passing of so many things, Autumn has her own amazing bounty to offer, with so many other fruits and vegetables just reaching their peak. The tomatoes, the kale, the cabbage, the carrots, the pumpkins – they are everywhere!

And the melons. Did I mention the melons? They are amazing! We didn’t grow melons in our garden this year, but the market is overflowing with them, and they are just so sweet and delicious that I thought I’d try making Cantaloupe Jam this year.
