Harvest Moon

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we call the full moon closest to the autumn equinox the Harvest Moon. In 2021, the Northern Hemisphere autumn equinox comes on September 22. The full moon falls less than two days earlier, on September 20. Thus, for the Northern Hemisphere, this full moon – the full moon closest to our autumn equinox – is our Harvest Moon.

Harvest Moon is just a name. In some ways, it’s like any other full moon name. But these autumn full moons do have special characteristics related to the time of moonrise. Nature is particularly cooperative in giving us dusk-till-dawn moonlight, for several evenings in a row, around the time of the Harvest Moon.

Now of course for us culinary weirdos, it means much more. If Spring is the beginning, then Fall is the bounty. Follow this link for an awesome guide to seasonal produce in Ontario;https://www.ontario.ca/foodland/page/availability-guide
