Do you know what I love about Autumn?
The word "autumn." It sounds like eating warm comfort food in a soft, cozy sweater, resting by a fire.
breaking new ground for a harvest to come
family walks while dinner finishes in the oven
fires in the stove burning dead oaks my husband felled to keep us warm
gleaning free walnuts from 100-year-old trees with friends who equally take delight in the experience
home-grown pumpkins that become spicy pies, breads, and cookies
gathering straw from the field with my children for the hens to nest in
raking up oak leaves to nourish the garden beds
