Fall is here! We’ve seen temperatures drop 25 degrees in just one day (typical Minnesota!) and we’ve had our first hard frost of the season.
I’ve been busy freezing tomatoes and carrots from the garden. I had planned to freeze some of the sweet corn my dear cousins brought me from Illinois, but we ate it all!
Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler temperatures, gorgeous fall colors and the comfort of warm casseroles and hot chocolate. I love curling up with some good reads – like these posts here:
