Late Summer

  Late summer…

Hazy skies.  Pumpkins!  The peaches are done!  Tomatoes just coming on they are late this year, oh well, green tomato relish!  Cleaning out the pantry.  Friday night high school football, Potter Valley Bearcats! (Last night was WAY too late) and now tomorrow is the traditional opening day of the NFL!  Yep, we’re a football family.  Along with that, and probably why I am a fan, come “Football Snacks” Bruschetta, artichoke dip, salsa, hot wings, won ton, and Chilie Rellenos.  I listen from the kitchen while I cook and am usually canning or freezing something or another from the garden at the same time.  Thinking ahead to that winter day when this food is going to taste soooooo good!  

The geese have begun to fly over the valley, our geese never leave they just like to fly around, they act like they are doing something, but they never leave!  The Mourning Doves are settling in the big red plum tree, you can hear the grape bins rumbling in the vineyard yard.   Putting the garden away little by little as things die off, building up the soil, planting here and there for winter harvest.    This is truly a time to be savored.  Golden days.
