Some more fall for y'all
Back to Andrea's turn...
Autumn to me means so many things: beautiful colors, the smell of the falling leaves, a crisp bite in the air, harvest time, pumpkins, warm sweaters, hay rides, apples. There must be something magical in the air when your child comes in and asks if they can rake the leaves.
I love the community that I live in because I am surrounded by apple orchards and have lots of varieties of fresh apples right at my fingertips. What I love, maybe even more, is apple cider. Last week we made our first trip of the season to Farnsworth Farms and bought 2 gallons of unpasteurized apple cider. YUM! And since it's unpasteurized you have to drink it quickly because you wouldn't want all that fresh goodness getting too happy and fermenting. This cider mill was a great find thanks to one of my favorite housemuffin websites:
pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and (dare I say) Christmas tree farms and lots. Check it out!
