Fall time at the homestead and the apples are ready to be pressed, the squashes are on the porch drying, and the tomatoes are done.  Time  to wrap up the gardens for winter.  Keep an eye on that amazing fall color.  Blueberries, sourwood trees, azaleas, vine and green Jap. maples all in their beauty.  The bird behavior keeps changing and the eagles are back up in the valley.  Yeah!  Garlic planting time in early October, and now is the time to mulch with all those leaves.  A fog now travels up and down the low fields morning and night, and wood smoke is in the air.   Great time to design spaces to be built next spring, much easier to stay inside when the rain falls.  Mushrooms blooming on the forest floors, enjoy.
