Pick Your Own

Don’t have a viable garden of your own or looking to supplement with more variety? Now you can easily find loca farms that let you pick your own from their bounty. PickYourOwn.org also offers a variety of tips and tools including crop calendars, weather forecasts, and canning and preservation instructions with  over 150 recipes including my favorite holiday standard: apple butter.

The site isn’t the flashiest, but it’s homey and chock-full of great information. Note that many of the listed farms close for the season in November, so I recommend getting out there this weekend. You can probably even get some great prices on pumpkins for your Thanksgiving pies.
