Is Fall Actually Coming?

October 9th, 2018 at 03:17 pm

Here in Central Illinois it has been way above average as far as temperatures. Hot and muggy in fact.

But that is supposed to change starting tomorrow with highs in the 50s and some lows in the upper 30s. DH has been starting to pull up garden plants. Yesterday I asked him to pick all the remaining red bell peppers and I washed and chopped them and put them in a freezer bag to use throughout the winter in soups and casseroles.

I have been working on drying herbs. All that was left was Thyme and we did that yesterday. I used to dry them in the microwave, but now I just have them sit in the sun room. It takes longer, but I think the flavor is better.

It's funny listening to people. We truly are never happy, are we? When spring was coming we could hardly wait until the heat came. Now we are wanting fall temperatures. One of my friends keeps wanting snow and a lot of it. I hope she gets a little for her own sake, but I am not enamored with it. It is funny how in movies and TV how when it starts snowing people get all misty eyed and wondrous. They never show the shoveling and slick streets, but I digress.

Fall may be coming. At least i have my canning and preserving completed.

    I am also confused about whether fall is actually coming or not. It has been warm, muggy, and raining a lot here. Thus, my basil is still producing a lot of leaves. That's good for me, though, as I get to dry and freeze more basil for use this winter.

    Fall is my favorite time of year. I just wish it would finally get here and stick around!

    Snow is great as long as no ice and you don't have to drive in it. Smile
