Harvest Time

October is one of my favorite months of a year for many reasons.

First of all, it’s harvest time! Bountiful fruits and vegetables at local farmers’ markets make it fun to cook and be creative in the kitchen. I also like to use pumpkins and all kinds of gourds as fall décor in my house.
Besides the gastronomic pleasures of autumn, fall brings such rich and beautiful colors that they always inspire me to create.


The vineyards around my house become colorful quilts of green, yellow, and red. I like walking through the vineyards and look for color combinations and texture contrasts to use in my designs.

Another reason I love October is because the entire Napa Valley where I live smells like harvested grapes in the morning.

Even when I’m driving behind a slow grape truck on our one-lane highway, instead of feeling irritated about the delay I get excited about the new grape harvest and begin to wonder how this year’s growing season will affect the wine.

What do you like about October? What are your favorite fruits and vegetables of the season? What inspires you the most this time of year? I want to hear your story!
