Yep, tomorrow not only marks the Autumn Equinox (Mabon) but it’s the end of Summer for many. For us in the Bay Area our Summer extends through September into October – sometimes into November. In fact, Summer doesn’t really hit its stride here UNTIL August. (90s are forecast for the coming week. Hot days mean warm nights which I absolutely LOVE!)
BTW, have I mentioned how much I’ve missed sunbathing? It’s been years since I’ve had a tan and I must admit I’m loving the way it looks – especially since I’m LIVING in shorts these days. LOL
Corn, heirloom tomatoes, and other seasonal produce are still in great abundance at our Farmers Markets. (Yay!) Next week it’s back to Excite Ballpark to see another SJ Giants game, and mid-September will be enjoying the last of the local Art & Wine Festivals.
Summer lingers on…
To celebrate the Autumn Equinox I made another Mabon Apple Cake, except I added a couple handfuls of raisins and about 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to the batter. Really made a difference in both the texture and flavor!
Enchanted Living‘s Autumn 2022 (The Vintage Witch) Issue included a recipe I HAD to try:
⛤ Merry Mabon everyone! ⛤
