Excited for Autumn!


I know it’s only August and we’re still in prime summer season, at least in the northern hemisphere, but I’m so excited for harvest season! And Halloween! Being able to pull my jeans out of their trunk is probably what I’m most excited for though.

My garden this year has so much good stuff that I am so excited to harvest! I’ve got leeks, more tomatoes than I’ll ever need, potatoes and so much more. I really spoiled myself with my garden. Hopefully this year I can make jams and salsa!

I’m not growing pumpkins though, since I ran out of room. I’m going to have to buy pumpkins for Jack-o-lanterns and roasted pumpkin seeds, but I don’t mind. Roasted pumpkin seeds are amazing!

Halloween and Samhain are probably my favourite holidays. I over decorate every year and there is nothing my boyfriend can do about it. Plus I can dress up like a witch and people think it’s normal. And goths, I love the goth aesthetic.

This speaks to my spirit (get it?)

Although, Mabon is a fun little family gathering tradition I want to get started with my tiny family. Baking and cooking with home grown vegetables and fruits, man I am so excited. I also make pretty ok bread so, there’s that too.

I’m so excited for September through to November, and I hope I can bully everyone I know to be excited with me! What are you most excited for? Let me know! Anyways…

Thanks for reading!
