September brings with it Spring and the ability to buy locally, especially in the deep South where fresh strawberries are available in Florida and Texas, followed by California. Cold weather crops, like spinach, some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and early onions being harvested in all but the colder regions.

Grocery Stores Claiming to be "Honey Producers"

I'm not knocking them; I shop at them, too.  They have lots of organic, healthy and upscale foods and produce (at premium prices, too). But in my opinion, they are NOT a true honey producer! Just spreading out bulk produce, usually trucked from other states or even countries, on tables doesn't make a grocery store into a honey producer. I only include them here because some naive' city folk just don't know any better. Let's put it this way: have you EVER seen a farmer in Harry's or Whole Foods? I didn't think so...
