Ready or not, it is quite evident that summer is fast-forwarding into fall as I stroll through the farm on this last day of August! Many of us are so consumed with back-to-school schedules, that we barely have time to notice!
The beautiful, bright, summery hues of flowing pansies
are soon replaced by the budding colors of autumn mums . . .
The Macoun apples are ripening on the trees . . .
The pear tree boughs are laden with golden-green fruit . . .
. . . and the goose squash (aka birdhouse gourds) are peeking out from under leafy vines. . .
These funny-looking gourds always make for great conversation pieces!
Corn-on-the-cob is still in abundance and soon we’ll be thinking about decorating with these leafy, dried cornstalks in the pumpkin patch!
