Orange and black are the colors of the month.
Orange pumpkins and squash proliferate at the farm stands. Bat and witch decorations are flying off the shelves. (See what I did there? ) Apples are ripe for the picking (not orange or black, but seasonal!) Candy corn has been on shelves since August (along with Thanksgiving and Christmas decorations).
Just stay away from Salem, MA this month. It’s an utter madhouse because of only one way to drive in and out, and parking is an absolute bear.
Speaking of bears, they’re started to load up their tummies for their winter nap, so keep that lid on your trash bins.
And humans are starting to cook those homey, warm braises and stews, making the house smell so good! What are you cooking?
