Fall has arrived on the Mountain

Fall has arrived with wonderful colors. The bright reds,yellows and oranges are breath taking.
Although falls brings new excitement an different chores to the farm. Harvest time is a great time, The gardens have giving all they can and its time to give the left overs to the animals. Wonderful to watch the chickens peck at a ear of corn and pigs go nuts for left over vines.
Pumpkins have been gathered, green tomatoes stocked up to make relish. The berries set in the freezer waiting for a slower day to make jams. Fall sweatshirts and flannel shirts have been taken out of storage. Brisk fall night have taken the place of hot and humid ones. Sleeping with the windows open an no fans is pure joy.

The smell of the wood stove burning on rainy days take the chill off and add such a warm feeling and country smell to our home. Cant wait for the first Turkey to be cooked and the smells of country food simmering. Bring you back to the old days when families gather and people visited, neighbors helped neighbors. Apple pies, and crisp, pumpkin pie fill the air with scent of fall.
I think fall is my favorite time of yr. The time of year there is more to do than any other, still warm enough for some to go swimming, hay rides and leaf peeping are enjoyed, cook outs and gardens seem better in the fall to me.
For today errands and grain runs, splitting wood are on my list of things to do.. So I best get busy.. Enjoy your day,, take a minute and look at the beauty around you. Have a wonderful day
