We made our last stop at the apple orchards today for the season. Most of the building was closed, the bakery was closed, and apples were 2 for 1.
I have a lovely bit of apples to tide me over. I’ll probably make apple crisp although I’m working on ways to reduce the amount of sugar in it.
I bought some cider for taking my medications with. I need to have something strongly flavored and NOT fizzy to take them easily.
I had one last, sad, caramel apple.
And it snowed.
It was blustery and snowing lightly when we went today, and this evening the snow is starting to collect as a light dusting. It’s still fairly warm out, so I don’t expect it to stick, but Tundra was excited to see it.
It was cold enough that my tomato plants have browned and died.
So, farewell summer. This has been a hard year, and hopefully the next season will be better.
