What happened to summer? Fall is in the air in Boston. Today I went to the supermarket and I saw a bounty of apples and pears and lots of root veggies. Outside of our house, I notice that our beautiful summer Dahlias are fading in color. This week we will clip them down to 6 inches, dry the roots, and dig up the bulbs. Placing the bulbs into dry sand and leaving them in the basement will ensure that we can replant them next spring. While I will miss the warmth of summer I look forward to family fall hikes and delicious, sweet apple crisps.
