There's still time to grab the last of corn and tomatoes while enjoying N.H. foliage

With a forecast of at least partly sunny weather, this weekend should be dynamite for combining leaf-peeping with cruising the last of the summer harvest in the Granite State's many farmstands. We drove around in the rain on Thursday, doing research for Food Lovers' Guide to Vermont & New Hampshire (Globe Pequot Press, May 2012), and were amazed by the blazing colors in the Dartmouth-Sunapee area and down along the Connecticut River. The photo above was snapped from the car on River Road in Plainfield, where one of the many farms on that beautiful stretch was winding up the harvest of sweet corn. We even scored some ripe heirloom tomatoes at a farmstand in New London. Foliage is still at peak along Route 11 west from I-89 to Claremont, and just a little past peak on Route 12 paralleling the Connecticut River. Enjoy!
