September is a funny time of year in the SF Bay Area.
At the farmers market, there’s evidence of both summer and fall. With the last of the peaches next to the first of the apples, it’s hard to miss that things are in transition.
You wouldn’t know it from the weather, though. September typically brings some of the year’s most summery temperatures. Warm, bright days without much fog.
And yet—the days are getting shorter. The shadows, longer. I may be wearing shorts, but there’s no missing that fall isn’t far off.
In the next week, my web site will be undergoing some transitions as well. Nothing major, just some sprucing up, some updating.
While that’s happening, pardon the dust. And enjoy some Apple-Cucumber-Lime Agua Fresca. It’s summer and fall all jumbled together into a cool, refreshing beverage.
Ideal for a warm September afternoon and a toast to transitions.
Speaking of apples, I’ll be teaching a hands-on cooking class called Celebrating Apple Season on September 15 at Ramekins in Sonoma. Click here for my schedule of classes and events.
