September: Breezes Tasting of Apple Peels
September 19, 2011
“The breezes taste
Of apple peel . . .”
— John Updike, “September,” from A Child’s Calendar
This is the season for apples. We have plenty on our apple trees this year. Yesterday morning I picked up those that had fallen over night and juiced them for breakfast. I added three carrots, half a lemon, and some leftover blackberries. Yum!
