every one of our apples have been picked!
what a wonderful autumn we have had with you!
thank you so much for supporting us through another
season. especially with the pandemic unexpectedly lingering.
well, not quite every apple is picked..
some quirky ones get left behind..
i love finding them!
although we are closed,
we aren’t on the couch eating bonbons just yet..
we’re busy doing numerous jobs before the winter..
signs and scarecrows, baby buggies and bushels
are stored away til next autumn.
we give the brooms and cauldrons and tea sets back to the witches.
our sweet farm animals that we fell in love with go back to our farmer friends
who kindly let us borrow them.
fields get plowed and planted with wheat,
enriching the soil, enabling us to plant again next spring.
irrigation lines are repaired and readied for the cold temperatures.
orchards are mowed.
machinery is repaired.
tool sheds, and barns get organized.
everything gets scrubbed clean.
yes..its very glamorous!
i try and wander through the orchards every morning.
this morning was gorgeous.. as the fog lifted and frost melted,
every thing sparkled!
i will share more answers to that another day,
but after our farm commitments, we do look forward to a break
where we can hopefully travel and visit new places to be inspired.
it’s also our cherished time to be with our friends and family once again.
my dad will be blowing out 92 candles this month!
hope you are well,
big, grateful hugs,
