See Ya, Summer!It’s time to say goodbye to those long, warm summer days and say hello to shorter days with crisp air and colorful leaves. It’s time for sweaters, bonfires and all your favorite fall foods.

More Than a Pie or a Jack-O-LanternIt’s the Great Pumpkin! The pulp of this fall favorite is packed with Vitamin A and C and the seeds are rich in phytosterols, which may help lower cholesterol. With all the health benefits of pumpkins, try a Google search for some great pumpkin recipes like pumpkin hummus or ravioli with pumpkin alfredo.

Making the Seasonal Swap in Your WardrobeBefore you stow away the swimsuits and shorts, wash everything first to prevent bacteria and moths from ruining your clothes. Store summer clothes in a sealed storage box with dryer sheets between the layers to keep them fresh all winter long. For more delicate items, like summer dresses pop them in a cotton garment bag.

Bring out the Winter LinensIf you like cozy beds, change from light cotton sheets to all-cotton flannel and swap your lightweight bedspread for a heavier duvet. Keep a basket of cozy throw blankets handy to snuggle up in and keep you warm on those cool crisp fall nights.

Winterize Your GardenFall is a good time to divide your perennials. The general rule of thumb is to divide them at least six weeks before the ground freezes so they get rooted before the freezing weather arrives. After the first freeze add a thick layer of mulch to keep the ground consistently cold or frozen until spring to help prevent freeze/thaw cycles in the soil that may cause the ground to heave and uproot your plants. You’ll be so glad you did next Spring!
