Week 47. Fall. What was fall like where and when you grew up? Describe not only the climate, but how the season influenced your activities, food choices, etc.
For many people fall is the time of changing colors of the leaves. Living in the state of Kansas much of the state does not have plentiful stands of trees, so our changing colors comes in other forms.
Fall for me was the time for a new school year, a time to buy new clothes, get the new books for school and the fall school activities to begin. On the farm it was time for the fall harvest of corn and milo. The fields of corn were drying up as the corn matured, and the milo was turning the fields to the bright red color. The garden was giving up it final produce and extras were being canned.
