The first apples are ready. One foot in summer. One foot in autumn. I can't help it - I'm already hearing whispers of autumn. Kids are back to school next week and it's so exciting again to have a first-grader in the house! I'm starting a new job, we are renovating our house and then there are all the dance and sport classes starting etc. etc. And it's time to harvest. Jam, juice, pies, dried and fresh ones. Busy times. New beginnings. Ideas and projects. Waiting for the new season already.
