Fall in the Garden and Orchard

A tangerine and russet cascade
Of kaleidoscopic leaves
Creates a tapestry of autumn magic
Upon the emerald carpet of fading summer.
~Judith A. Lindber

Yesterday was apple orchard day at our house and we had a wonderful time. We followed up with homemade pizza and it was the perfect cool, crisp afternoon for walking outside, and heating up the oven. I came home with Gala apples that are pefect for eating, and later I'll stock up on baking apples.  I think this year I'll try a couple of pies or cakes with caramel and apples.

The cool weather is a reminder that Fall is officially here and the garden season is winding down for most of us. I wrote an article last week for OFL with tips on ending your garden season on the right note. You'll find the garden tips here:

Next up is a series of articles with A Taste of Fall theme that I think everyone will enjoy.
