Fall Colors – Leaves lose chlorophyll as trees prepare for dormancy. We think of it as fall color, but, in actuality, trees are taking back what gives leaves their true color. Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. According to the United States National Arboretum, as nights grow longer, cells at the junction of the leaf and stem begin to divide rapidly. That basically blocks the production of chlorophyll. Leaves change color and start to drop. No matter how you think of it, fall is a beautiful time. Now that pumpkins have appeared in nurseries and grocery stores, think about stocking up on a few Sugar Pie Pumpkins to make and freeze pumpkin puree for use later in the season. Making your own pumpkin puree is easy in small batches. Tie dried corn stalks together for decorations, and fill a basket with colorful squashes and dried corn cobs for the table. Collect fallen leaves and press them between heavy books for a few weeks to decorate your holiday tables. It’s free and easy if you plan ahead. Check out this link to some great ideas for fall table decorations that don’t require much effort.
