On September 22, 2021, the day and night will be almost equal in most locations. It’s called the autumn equinox. What I call the transition from summer to fall. This is my favorite time of year. The summer heat is finished here in Vermont and so is the humidity, but the main event is the fall harvest.
All the watering, weeding, and TLC given to the vegetable garden is now becoming abundant. Pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and beets are being washed to preserve for winter.
Plus, the summer sun burns, and heat rashes are gone to be replaced by the dry skin regime of moisturizing daily to keep skin soft and supple. Don’t worry Vermont Lavender has you covered for your dry winter skincare needs.
So, sit back with a warm cup of tea, hot coffee or cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the next season of cozy sweaters and watch the maple leaves change to beautiful fall colors of autumn.
