It's officially very Autumn-y around here. Pumpkin and applesauce canning. Halloween costume-making. Heat on when we wake each morning. I wore my winter coat the other night. There's no denying that the wheel of the year is turning.
And of course, green tomato salsa is a dead giveaway.
The salsa turned out very dry. I suspect that our paste tomatoes were lower in moisture than average. The salsa will need some love as we open each jar.
As a lifetime lover of Summer, I can't help but feel some sadness at this time of year. Although Fall is lovely, I seriously dread the Winter to follow. I do not like being cold. For me, one of the best parts of being pregnant was always being warm enough. I do not like the danger of driving in the snow and ice. I do not like the dinginess of the landscape. I was not designed for Winter.
I was happy to wake this morning to sunshine after several days of clouds. It's a chilly sunshine, but I'll take it.
