A Breath of Fresh Air September 2023

“Apples, peaches, pumpkin pie/Soon your love will be all mine.” - Jay & The Techniques

Hello, September! A bridge between summer and fall, the upcoming month can accommodate those who are sad to see summer go as well as those clamoring for pumpkin spice everything and crisp autumn air. (You know who you are.) We like this photo from Donaldson Farms, as a nod to the emerging apple season (and Apple Harvest Weekends) as well as a salute to the red, white and blue in honor of Labor Day.

We searched the far reaches of the internet and packed in as much as we could find into this issue. As usual, the fun never stops in Warren County, so without further delay, Happy Wanderings!
