I love Autumn. It is my favorite season. With a freeze predicted this weekend, I spent most of my time preparing the garden and the pantry shelves for the coming winter months. The garden was a real money saver this year what with the spike in gas and fuel prices. When we added up our grocery bills for the summer we got a nice surprise.
