Highlight: No, the trees haven’t really begun to show their seasonal change of colors yet. That is still some weeks away. But, the black walnut trees have already lost most of their leaves. Their obnoxious and annoying green balls, along with their offensively malodorous, rotting husks, are littering the yard and endangering the windshields of our vehicles. And, as with so many of life’s contradictions, the unpleasant black walnut litter, in its own way, engenders a certain type of optimism. Yes, the most highly favored season at Serendipity Farmhouse is now beginning to wrap itself around us – our dearly treasured Autumn.
Weather: The remnants of Hurricane Michael and a welcome cold front brought rain, wind, and a dramatic drop in temperatures. As has been the case all year, weather dominates our work in the yard and gardens.
