What is your favorite Fall tradition aside from holiday traditions?
Halloween and Thanksgiving aside, do you enjoy other Fall traditions? What are they?
We love to make fresh apple butter and we tend to have gatherings around the firepit outside. What are your non-holiday related Fall traditions?
Grilling and camping. My partner likes to show his camping and grilling tips and I get to taste his fantastic cooking. We love doing these together and I'm addicted to smores!
Fall camping trips are indeed a lot of fun. My son is on crutches right now so we are missing out this year unfortunately, but we love to go summer and fall
I hope he recovers soon and that you enjoy camping in the spring.
Growing up in England, I used to love collecting and playing "Conkers
I lived close to a park which had dozens of mature Horse Chestnut Trees. As my friends and I went back to school we would throw sticks up into the trees to knock down the prickly seed cases. The large nut inside is inedible, but we would dry them and drill a hole through the centre from top to bottom, thread them individually onto a shoelace and then as one person holds their conker still their opponent flicks their conker into it until they either miss or the laces tangle, the player to call strings first gets to take a turn. This continues until one of the conkers is smashed and the winning (conquering conker) becomes a oncer, twicer, thricer etc.
As an sadult I still collected conkers, but planted them around the park. By the time I left in 2006 four or five of my planted conkers had formed some nicely growing trees for future generations of "conkerers"
Opening my kitchen. I don't cook much during the summer. The kitchen stays "closed" during the hot summer weather. As soon as the cool fall weather arrives, I start cooking (and baking) up a storm. I love a warm house filled with the great smell of cooking and baking when it's chilly outside.
Living in Texas, the summer heat curtains a lot of small, enjoyable customs -- like having morning coffee on my front porch. A small thing? Yes, but there's great contentment in having my big, white cat "Dirty White Boy" curl up in my lap as I drink coffee in the very early a.m. and enjoy a cool breeze. The squirrels and birds are just beginning their daily activities and that's the only thing that breaks the early morning silence on my quiet street -- a great time for thinking and reflections.
Cooking, canning and apple picking. You can do them separately and then combine the three.
For me and my kids it is getting all the leafs together and us all jumping in. No matter how big they are getting they still get out of seeing mom jump into leaves and pulling them in and doing a leaf fight with them.
Making a leaf collage with my daughter. She loves collecting fall leaves! Then we hang her decorations throughout the house.
We usually take a trip to the North Georgia Mountains for a day of apple eating and leaf seeing. It is something I have done all my life.
In hot and dry So. California, Fall is the best time for planting. The soil is warm , but the air is beginning to cool. Perennials will have both Winter and Spring to develop good root structure. My Fall tradition is amending and preparing beds, plantng new flowers, bulbs, and shrubs, and giving one last feeding before winter dormancy to Spring bloomers like azaleas.
