Yesterday, we drove through the mountains and I was very happy to see that we might have some wonderful color in a couple of weeks. After a very hot, dry Summer, we've had lots of rain and very cool temps which will make for colorful Fall leaves. These pics are not great because I was driving about 80mph and clicking with one hand.
As we left the mountains, I could see that the fields had all been cut. Just look to the Amish to now what the weather is going to be. I have never seen them harvest crops this early and in such quantity as they have this year. This means we are in for an early frost. There was a fire sale of vegetables in every market and the prices were exceptionally low.
I'm too busy to do any canning this year but it sure was tempting. There were bushels of vegetables at really good prices.
All of the markets had their winter feed on display which makes me think we will see an early snow too.
It was a bright and very sunny day so there is a lot of glare on these pics. This is one of our favorite places to buy Fall decorations.
They have the best selection of metal signs.
I thought this was such a clever display. They stacked apple crates to build a pumpkin and mum display.
Gourds anyone? We came back with the car filled to the hilt with pumpkins, straw bales, vegetables and eggs. I bought ten dozen eggs. I'm still feeding workers and breakfast sandwiches for hungry workers calls for a lot of eggs!
