POV: A garden’s September swan song

I know the end of the garden is near, but today I pick some tomatoes and basil for tonight’s salad, and the sunshine comes indoors with me to the kitchen counter. An older gardener now, I know that it is time to take a break for a while perhaps to make an apple pie, another gift of the season. As I peel the apples for the pie, I enjoy a few bites and the pleasure of sharing some apple with my dog. The late afternoon sun is flooding my kitchen window with warm amber rays, and I am loving it!
