Oh how we love pumpkin season. You did know this gourd-ish squash has its own season, right? Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin.... We anxiously anticipate it every year. ~Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer, October 2010

falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly
~John Bailey, "Autumn," a haiku year, 2001, as posted on

The days may not be so bright and balmy�yet the quiet and melancholy that linger around them is fraught with glory. Over everything connected with autumn there lingers some golden spell�some unseen influence that penetrates the soul with its mysterious power. ~Northern Advocate

Like the quotes for autumn. Baked a butternut squash , pealed it and cut it into serving size and froze it. Yum.
Pumpkins are everywhere and yes, including "Trader Joe's".
I'm ready for fall.

RE: Quotes 9/24

On the way home today we saw a maple tree, half green and half starting to go red and the last two nights there was a noticable nip in the air. Getting hot gain tomorrow or, as we say in German "Altweiber Sommer" ( Old women's summer).

RE: Quotes 9/24

Ja, here they call it "Indian Summer' but today I got concerned for the night temps,, "official" and my micro-climate are vastly divergent, so if NOAA says 40-something here, it often means 30-something on my place, so I picked all tomatoes, pink and green, putting them into the pantry to ripen.
