Trader Joe’s Fall Shopping List
I always love a good shopping trip to Trader Joe’s, but there is nothing better than shopping at Trader Joe’s during fall. They have such fun fall themed products from food to beauty products, you are guaranteed to find something that you will love. Here are a few of my favorite Trader Joe’s Fall products that are always on my shopping list.
Leaves are falling, autumn is calling!
1. Pumpkin Pancake and Waffle Mix – This mix is so good! They also have a pumpkin butter that I’m not too crazy about but a lot of people love to put on top of their pancakes or waffles. I like using regular syrup or homemade buttermilk on top of mine.
2. Apple Cider Jam- This jam is so good on buttered toast in the morning!
3. Pumpkin O’s – This might be one of my favorite cereals ever!
4. Maple Leaf Cookies – I am not crazy about a lot of Trader Joe’s cookies, which people think I am crazy, for but I do love these!
5. Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese – When it comes out of the box frozen it looks “meh” but I promise once you bake it, it’s delicious.
6. Caramel Apple Granola – I put it in my honey flavored Greek yogurt and it’s amazing.
7. Pumpkin Raviolis – A super fast and yummy fall meal.
8. Haunted House Kit – This kit is one of the kids favorites.
9. Pumpkin Body Butter – You will smell like a walking fall candle and it’s amazing. I wish it spread better but the smell makes up for it.
10. Apple Cider Hand Soap – It’s not as good as I remember from last year, but still good.

What To Plant In Your Garden For A Late Fall Harvest
Fall in the garden is different for everyone depending on where you are. For most it’s a time to plant the hearty veggies that will develop quickly in advance of winter. This means spinach and kale, any cabbage (think Brussels sprouts) and cauliflower. Some root vegetables can be good too, and don’t forget some pollinators (pretty flowers) that will attract bees and butterflies.
