I love how each season brings with it different varieties of fruits and vegetables.

If you eat seasonally, you’ll usually find that the fruits and vegetables harvested during the season you eat them taste especially flavorful, and it’s also fun to see which foods are available during that time.

One of my favorite seasons for seasonal produce is fall, because it’s squash season and I love cooking with all kinds of squashes.

There’s butternut squash, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, and of course we can’t forget about these 39 best delicata squash recipes!
