Fall Is Nearly Here

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I am so glad to be back in New England for this one. This last week color started appearing in the trees around the pond and on the road home as you start to climb in elevation.

In Vermont there were lots of folks that planted orchards or singular apple trees on their farms and then as the years have gone by those orchards were abandoned. This weekend we traveled some back roads and picked apples along the side of the road. One variety that I had never heard of until this fall were Yellow Transparent. Juicey and slightly tart - they make great applesauce.

There has been a chill in the air the last few days... and the yellows, reds, orange and golds of fall are well on their way.
