Autumn or Fall began on Wednesday and it is my favorite time of year. Ever since I can remember, I have loved this season. Pumpkins, gourds, leaves, cool in the air, hayrides, hot cocoa, apples, squash, apple cider, the colors, all make this a special time for me.
I started working on an orchard farm, Irons Fruit Farm, when I was 15 and actually still do website work for them. So, I have been working for them for 29 years (do the math). I learned a lot about fruits and vegetables, especially apples and pumpkins. I grew up on a farm and before that, my grandfather had a fruit stand. I loved sitting on the counter and eating plums. So, it was natural to move on to the fruit farm.
I did a lot of things at the fruit farm from tours of the orchard, tours of the pumpkin patch, stocking, cashier, bakery, fruit grading (sorting), cider bottling and anything else you can think of. It was some of the greatest times of my life. The busiest time at the farm was Fall and it was so much fun. This solidified my love of the season.
Get out to a bonfire, head out to an orchard, drink some cider, pick a pumpkin while riding on a hayride. Enjoy the season before it gets cold!
I like to make sure you have ideas for a stunning wedding or event, helpful organization or home staging and redecorating - this is where my ideas culminate.
