Enjoying Autumn!

Love this time of year!! I usually dedicate at least 10 blogs each fall with the chanting of 'I LOVE THIS SEASON'.  If I could live in one season all year long, autumn would win hands down.  (Minus the Asian Beetles which have taken over the place!  They love this time of year too!)  There is a romantic energy that envelopes the countryside everywhere around you.....the fall harvest, cleaning the last produce out the garden, crimson colored leaves, pumpkins and gourds and more pumpkins, making Apple Danish bars, and oh my gosh - the list goes on and on............ 

'John Boy bringing in a big load of corn stalk bales!  If you are not from a farm, corn stalk bedding is to cows as a Sealy Posturepedic is to people! 

'Zach on the Bobcat, helping unload the cornstalk bedding.'  My little man - almost grown up!

As you can see, this is hard work.....it is necessary to take a break and rest from time to time!

A beautiful sunset glazes the countryside at feeding time - one of my favorite moments on the farm.

The carrots from the garden were amazing and bountiful this year - remind me to post my oven roasted carrot recipe for you soon!

And who doesn't love apple bars, especially this time of year.  If you love apple pie, you will love this recipe for Apple Danish Pastry Bars - ENJOY!! Click HERE for the full recipe!
