Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

“Harvest is in full swing, as everyone is busy as a bee,” wrote Chris Brower, of Uncle John’s Farm Stand, after one of his biweekly trips west for produce. “Ripe fruit doesn’t wait; it needs to be picked when it’s ready, and there is a lot ripening now — peaches, apples, pears, tomatoes, plums — a great time to be a fruit lover.”
