September 19th - 

Full harvest moon. For a few nights around this full moon, there is bright moonlight early in the evening. In ages past, this meant that farmers could continue harvesting after sunset.

A Story and a Recipe

By Dorothy Johnson

Our calendar summer is almost over.  The weather experts are threatening frost so I know that cooler weather is about to turn into even cooler weather. On the farm this was a season of great activity.  The vegetables had to be harvested, taken under cover and stored either in the cellar or canned or frozen.  Everyone had a hand in the process.
