Can you believe it? The first day of fall is already just one month away. Before we know it, we’ll all be pulling our warm sweaters out from the back of our closets and trading in our sandals for boots. It’s the time of the year when the local farmer’s market starts phasing out strawberries and sunflowers in favor of squash and sweet corn.
When I was younger I used to dread the fall. You know, because fall meant school, and school meant homework, and who likes homework?
Luckily, I’ve done some growing up since then and realized that this time of year isn’t just a countdown until the first day of school, but a hybrid of the best things summer and fall have to offer. Having summer’s warm weather and fall’s savory flavors is a match made in heaven.
