We are trying to plan a small reception for the first weekend in October in York, Maine. It will be an outdoors event, in the afternoon, for approx 30 people, eight of which are kids.
What's likely to be around at this point in New England vegetable and fruit-wise? I can't imagine you'd still have all of the eggplants and tomatoes that we still have in early October in Northern California, but are you full on into fall, either?
Trying to work with a local caterer and not getting a ton of feedback. The menus are coming slowly, I think she is super slammed with summer parties, so I thought I'd take matters into my own hands and try to plan a good fall menu for this area. I don't want to be too off base however, so any guidance you could give would be appreciated.
Also, does anyone recommend a good caterer in the area? Just in case ours doesn't pan out, or she sees this post and doesn't want to deal with a crazy, west-coast micro-manager....
