Adults and teens, don’t feel left out.  November is your time.  Plan ahead for “Fruit of the Harvest” photos in Augusta.  The harvest theme includes anything from planting the crop, various stages of growth, through the final product.  Harvesting the grain or the grapes is also part of the process; or even the final product with a creative touch.  Who doesn’t love pictures of tasty food, especially from Augusta’s restaurants!
