Autumn Equinox Weed Walk and Kitchen Update

12:38 PM

It's the equinox and from here on out the days will be shorter than the nights here in the northern hemisphere.  The weather has turned cooler and the leaves are starting to change color.  Everything that is going to set fruit this season is doing so and herbs and flowers for winter remedies abound.  This is going to be a photo roundup of what we've been doing and seeing around here lately.

Hope you enjoy!

The apple crop is great this year and the fruit was so close to the ground that the kids could easily reach it. They filled our 1/2 peck bag right to the top!  I'm super-excited about my apple recipe ideas and activities I have planned to try with these.
