Where Oh Where....

   ....Has summer gone???
                 Didn't it just start???

It sure feels like summer just started a couple of weeks ago and here we are at the close of it. The leaves on the trees are starting to change color - one of the first signs that autumn is approaching. Another sure sign of autumn fast approaching is that harvest is underway, gardens are bearing abundance of produce, the days are getting shorter and the evenings are getting cooler. Yes summer is drawing to a close whether I am ready for it or not.  Soon it will be time to pull my pond plants, move the fish inside and drain the water off for another year.

Hope to can some relish, sandwich spread and salsa this year. I haven't canned anything in many years. I have cabbage to blanch and get ready for cabbage rolls and perogies to make, all signs that autumn is approaching.

Another sure sign was the heavy frost we got the other night... -5 Celsius boy was it chilly in the morning when you are used the + temperatures of summer.

Changes are happening all around us, preparing for the start of a new season.

Where Oh Where
