autumn


This is my favorite time of year. There is a crispness to the air, the mornings and evenings are cooler. Pumpkins and all kinds of squash are abundant. School is in session and, like Meg Ryan says in You've Got Mail, "I could have bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils". There is just something about the newness of it all, the transition from summer to fall, and I just cannot get enough of it. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. The Pumpkin Walk, corn maze, leaves changing colors. And, last but definitely not least, peaches. They are in full bloom this time of year and we definitely take advantage of that! What you are looking at now is considered liquid gold among my family and close friends. These are at the top of the list of high commodities. Plus canning them is half the fun (eating them is the other half). I love to can peaches with my mom. I know I could probably do it myself but it is way more fun to do it with her. Admittedly, she does most of the work, but it is always great to hear her stories of canning and doing this exact thing with her grandmother. That in itself is liquid gold.

I completely agree with you. I LOVE this time of year. I honestly almost shed a tear the other day when I thought about the end of the season and not having access to all the great produce. I have been LOVING it!

I agree completely with you. The fall is my favorite time. I love the holidays especially halloween, and football starts, the leaves are beautiful and everything is glorious
