This isn't really a food post, per se, but I thought I'd document a few scenes from the waning summer while I still can. I was staring out my office window today thinking how soon the leaves would be turning brown and falling, the sun is setting earlier and earlier every day, and I'm about to start writing about apples. My brother-in-law, a sophomore in high school, just started back to school on Wednesday. Yes, dear readers, Autumn is breathing down our necks. I haven't eaten nearly enough sweet corn, and I still haven't canned anything (mom, please don't be disappointed in me!). I guess I'd better get out there while I still can, before the gray Ohio rain takes over the green of my tiny urban (cat & tomato) farm.
