The last day of summer

Actually, not the true last day of summer. I’m referring here to this past Sunday, which was the second to last day of summer. But we had a cold front move in Sunday night, dropping temperatures to the low-50s. We celebrated the end of summer and start of autumn with a cider-making day at a farm in Lyons. We went with new friends Hunter and Sara, and Jason and Tasha. The farm was a great reminder of why we care about working towards a more self-sufficient life. It was a beautiful and productive place, really wonderful.
