Fall and the Farm



I don't get out to the farm as often as I'd like, so I dramatically feel the change in season every time I visit. During this trip fall is full steam ahead, the air is turning from brisk to cold, and my breath is visible in the air. Giant fig and walnut leaves color the land and pomegranates and persimmons are ripe for picking. (More on pomegranates this week.) The farm in the fall is stunning and exemplifies all that is right in the world.

  4. Wow, Marcie, that is a large plot of land! yum, you can use apples and walnuts to bake something. and pomegranates are so good for you. We still have some in the fridge, although they are long gone from the tree branches. I even heard they do well in the freezer?

  6. I agree, everything is so pretty there right now. When I was home a few weeks ago, my parents loaded me up with persimmons and walnuts and I'm still eating them. It's so nice to get fresh fruit from our parents' yards! Just one of many things I didn't appreciate until leaving home. Hope you had a great weekend with your family!

  8. Marcie I can't believe the pomegranates just hang on the trees like that. It would be pure heaven for me - I'm a pomegranate fanatic. Picture me running down the plowed path, shirt folded up and filled with pomegranates, while I slouch over trying not to lose any. Disaster!

    Can't wait for upcoming posts!!
