The late summer always surprises me. Suddenly the fields change color – the greens turn to yellows and golds. The light and the air change. The days are getting shorter. Though the vegetable garden is certainly still growing and producing, the hot weather crops are winding down and the fall crops are growing.
I have had all sorts of big events this summer. Parties and family. Its gone by much too fast. But has been a wonderful summer.
In a few days school starts, and the fall business season will be busy.
But for this Labor Day weekend – the last summer weekend – I will enjoy the rich colors of the late summer fields and the rich flavors of the late summer garden.
