The Carnival of Homeschooling is hosted this week at Corn and Oil.
“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” – Henry Beston, Northern Farm Last Saturday our planet’s northern hemisphere rolled into autumn. The autumnal equinox reminded us of the later sunrises and earlier sunsets. Cool autumn evenings with a bit of frost here and there prepare us slowly for winter in the northern states. Fall is my favorite season and sometimes it seems to pass too quickly. Digging up the spiked iris plants and magnificent cannas to pack away from the bitter cold, while troweling in garlic bulbs to root and settle in preparation for a late spring harvest is a usual pattern here on our Illinois farm. Homeschoolers know how to tuck in and prepare in the comfort of home.
