Fall? Wait a minute!

    It's mid-July ... it's 90 degrees, but I'm seeing signs that the season  is heading toward the inevitable change ......

  • The school uniforms are out in the stores; I see  sales on school supplies, too.  (I'm not completely surprised; some schools in my community will go back in early August.)
  • The canning supplies are appearing.   Last month, I couldn't find pectin anywhere.  This weekend, I found it at three different stores.  I would, however, like to find some jelly-jar sized lids ... seems like most places just carry jars.
  • Got a postcard from our favorite orchard ... some varieties of apples will be ready to pick this coming week. 
Any signs of fall in your area?
