we love the changes fall brings to the farm...

donning more wool and layers...heartier meal such as our quail and garden herbs for an early evening supper with squash
taking more time to slowly settle in the the winter nesting that fall is leading to...
enjoying the last of some hydrangeas that will eventually be dried ...
How are you preparing for fall in your neck of the woods?

LOVED the post...I am always interested in the ways people cook and their menus as you probably noticed by my questions sent to you.

We have a Quail farm down the road that is for sale. Been for sale a long time. Probably most folks around here don't know much about quail (myself included). Is it like partridge? Use to hunt partridge with my grandfather.

We are in the process of moving, so trying to de-junk and prepare all our things for boxes...so I guess in some sort of way we are getting ready to hibernate...but hopefully our move will be complete before Christmas.

Have a wonderful weekend.

We will be getting all the outdoor furniture into the garage....emptying the window boxes and hanging basket containers...last minute wash-ups on the house.
I put up my autumn banner in my front porch...have two pumpkins on my step. ( I need to grow my own...the price is nutty here for pumpkins..unless you get them from the amish...which I did)
Apple sauce was done early this week.
I am needin' me some pumpkin pie.
Also need to use up some of the apples and make pies for my kids and the grands.
BTW- the house they bought is coming along. Planning to live off grid. The hubs has been working on the house with our son. It should be a nice home. Perfect for their growing family.

I made three soups yesterday for lunch and hubby's supper at work. Got to pick the apples today (not many as our trees are only five years old). We always give our wooden porch rail and wooden picnic table a good coat of varnish and stain to better weather the harsh winter. Have to put away summer furniture too.

We are putting our storm windows up, making soup on the woodstove, sorting and storing potatoes.
Warm wishes, Tonya
