Well, we went from days in the 90’s to days in the 70’s in what seemed like a nanosecond. But upon review, we did get a week of 80 degree days. And we FINALLY got some rain, after a wet spring and then nothing for months and months.

September Temps 2017

There are pumpkins at the farmers market and the smell of crisp fall leaves in the air. I’ve made three batches of apple butter for market, and canned 3 1/2 gallons of apple cider.

I LOVE Fall. It’s a time of abundance for me, and an anticipation of things slowing down after a very busy 5 months. (Note: Farmers markets go through the end of October. It’s not over yet! Check the “were to find me” tab above for a holiday show schedule as well.)

The leaves are starting to fall from the crab apple tree into my produce washing sink. Every year I am struck by the contrast of the colored leaves against the white surface. And ALMOST every year since I’ve been here, I’ve taken a picture (no picture for 2013. Must not have been feeling it that year). Thought it might be fun to review the history.
