Fall is a time for us to harvest the fruits of our labor. I love eating my frozen garden vegetables in the long cold winter months ahead. Fall is a time when we can plan out a garden for next year and see if we want to try out any new varieties of garden vegetables.
I love to make applesauce from my apple trees. I do not ad any sugar to my applesauce as it is sweet enough just from the plain apples used in making the applesauce. Applesauce is a wonderful winter snack. I used too freeze a lot of apple pies that I would eat or give away or take to gatherings.
I love looking at the awesome fall foliage in the fall. The trees have vivid and avid colored leaves extending from their branches which are one of Gods awesome creations. I love the fall temperatures which are neither too hot or too cold . I love to walk outdoors and hear the leaves crunch under my feet. I like to pick up pretty fall leaves and press them in a book between wax paper.
Fall lets the soil rest until next spring. The soil gains nutrients through the stubble left behind after the fall harvest which makes for rich soil in the spring.
It is fun to watch the squirrels gathering up walnuts for the cold winter months ahead. They bury them in the ground or hid them in a building, woodpile, car, house or various other places. My cats start getting a nice thick coat of fur on their bodies to give them a little extra insulation in the winter months ahead.
We put finishing touches on all of our outdoor projects. We check the anti freeze in our cars, caulk, sweep out the garage, check the tread on our tires, till up our garden, trim off old foliage and lots of other things to get ready for the long winter ahead.
I take my convertible out for a few more drives before it gets too cold. We check our furnace, foundation for leaks and ad insulation to our attic if necessary.
I hope you and your family have an awesome fall driving around looking at fall foliage and going to orchards ,etc. I love to take short little trips in the fall as there is so much too see and do.
