You know it is almost as warm as it was back in our record cool July!

This possible global cooling we could be in is disconcerting to people. We really never a miserably hot weather day all year!

I remember it being so hot some years we actually fried an egg on the sidewalk just to see if it was truth or myth.

This could be our Indian summer. Farmers love it, it looks like we might have a whole week of harvest at one time!

"An early American writer described Indian Summer well when he wrote, "The air is perfectly quiescent and all is stillness, as if Nature, after her exertions during the Summer, were now at rest."

"The term "Indian Summer" dates back to the 18th century in the United States. It can be defined as "any spell of warm, quiet, hazy weather that may occur in October or even early November."

Indian summer is a valuable time to harvest and prepare for the coming winter here in North America.

Everyone was out yesterday and I mean everyone. It felt great to me to do it and see it, feel it and experience it.

Loads of firewood are going in, the freezer is full, the ground is prepared for next year's crop.

Just think, if it weren't for farmers, there would be no grocery store to run to!

I think we take our food system for granted.

What do you think?
