We have been enjoying beautiful fall weather - perfect for putting the garden to bed and preparing for winter hibernation. Today I picked and received a bounty of goodness - peppers and tomatoes from our small garden, pears from my tenacious garden growing neighbor Patrice and apples and plums from Maid Elizabeth (her new property has beautiful fruit trees). We'll dehydrate our peppers, can the pears and eat the tomatoes and plums fresh. What bounty! The few apples Maid Elizabeth brought over today we'll eat fresh (they're sooo good!), however, this weekend we plan on taking our cider press to her house and pressing apple cider - such a perfect fall enterprise!

|Pears and apples and plums, oh my!|
