The Colors of Summer

As summer is rapidly winding down...it makes me feel a little sad.  While I am very excited to welcome Autumn with it's crisp cool air and awesome foliage of the trees, as their leaves turn brilliant colors.  I will miss all the  fresh produce of the summer.  There is nothing like the summer and it's abundant colorful vegetables and fruit!  This year has been a bumper corn crop  for S.Central Pa.  The most bountiful ever recorded.  Seems Mother Nature loved our neck of the woods this year and decided to give the farmers the perfect combination to nurture the crops!  Thank God for the many Blessings.
So we have a few more weeks to buy produce at our local farmers markets and roadside stands, soon the fresh corn, tomatoes, squash,  canteloupes and watermelons, will be replaced with Mums, pumpkins and Apples!

Nothing better than fresh produce. Being a farm person, I do enjoy it.
