September Forecast

September Forecast

Hello, September! Here in NYC, this means signs of fall are coming which happens to be one of the best seasons weather-wise for us, so that's a plus. However, parting with summer won't be easy! I'm thinking I'll have to bake... a lot... to cope with it.

Peak Season Produce

  • Apples
  • Blueberries
  • Grapes
  • Pears
  • Plums
  • Raspberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers
  • Peppers

*Flower: Aster


The month starts out a bit rough or dramatic for many, but picks up middle to end of September right before Libra hits with positivity, new beginnings, healing and relaxation. This is due to the Sun and Venus coming out to play! This has already sparked some inspiration for Septembers' recipes. A mix of rich comforting foods to help ease drama, followed by some lighter-hearted and relaxed recipes. 

Surround yourself with some wildflowers or Aster flowers, positive people, a clean home, and always, delicious food!
