Brace yourselves, the pumpkins are coming.
Though summer doesn't officially end until September 22nd, Labor Day is often touted as summer's last hurrah. All signs are pointing to fall - schools are back in session, the days are slowly but surely getting shorter, and wearing white is a huge no-no (just kidding, I don't even think that rule exists anymore). Personally, I can't accept that fall is coming until I can be outside for an extended period of time without sweating through my clothes, regardless of the date on the calendar.
But regardless of when summer is actually, truly, really really for real over, the truth is that the days of beautiful stone fruits, berries, and melons are coming to a close. But don't fret, there's still plenty of time to grab the last of the beautiful seasonal produce and indulge in these delicious treats.
