Yet again summer felt short, and, I admit, it was too chilly and rainy for my liking. On the plus side, I made sure to take advantage of the beautiful, sunny days we did have, making them that much sweet.
The turning of the calendar isn’t all bad news either because fall is, by far, my favourite season, so I welcome it with open (although sweater-covered) arms. Growing up on a farm that featured a small apple orchard and roadside market, on Hwy. 21 south of Kincardine, fall always was our busiest season, as the apples were harvested. This fall marks the first year in a quarter century I won’t be helping my parents on the home farm, as they are enjoying their first year of retirement. Had 15-year-old me knew I would one day miss all the work that goes into an apple harvest, she’d be floored, but fresh apples off the tree just can’t be beat, regardless of how much work it takes to put them into your hands. I wish my parents, Roger and Gail Farrell, a well-deserved retirement!
