Fall here at the orchard brings a number of changes both in routines and rhythms.
Cooler days mean more leisurely mornings. No need to rush out to do farm chores before the sun heats the temperature to baking degrees. Dogs get to go outside and play "frisbee" in the afternoon instead of waiting until early evening. Patience is not easy for them or for us!
Pears and apples replace plums and peaches as the fruit of choice. All organic and delicious in their own time.
And then there is the switch from cold cereal to oatmeal - with chia seeds, flax, cinnamon, raisins and our very own walnuts. Truly "fall-ing" can be relaxing and scrumptious.
