Michaelmas, Part One

Blackberry Cobbler for breakfast...

"According to an old Irish folk tale, blackberries were supposed to have been harvested and used up by this date, too, since it is told to children that when Satan was kicked out of Heaven, he landed in a bramble patch -- and returns each year to curse and spit on the fruits of the plant he landed on, rendering them inedible thereafter."

Apple picking...

Today we picked Jona Golds (or Jonagold) at one of our local orchards!

    I love that tradition about the blackberries, yum
