Change of Season – Fall

Fall officially starts September 22nd…in the Northern Hemisphere…this year. Did you know it changes slightly every year? There is a simple scientific explanation that involves the rotation of the Earth and it’s distance and location to the Sun. You can learn more about this on the Old Farmer’s Almanac dstclockimagewebsite.  Basically that means less daylight hours and we move our clocks back to try to get as much daylight as we can.

How do you feel about Daylight Savings Time?

This also means our chickens will stop laying!

Do you support artificial sunlight in chicken coops to encourage laying?

July and August are the hottest months of the year in Florida, so we’re not really feeling very Fall-ish three weeks into September. Sometimes in mid October we start having a few overcast days (without rain), maybe a gentle breeze and if we’re lucky a cold front will come through and it might drop into the high 70’s/low 80’s. We usually have a brief Fall in January before our two weeks of Winter in February. You can check out our current weather here.

Our Fall is what we make it, so out comes our “Fall” bin. I try to remember sometime before October to pull it out and start talking, teaching and decorating for Fall and the Holidays it contains. We don’t celebrate halloween, so we focus on the changing of the season and Daylight Savings Time before we jump into Thanksgiving and then Christmas. I have a bin for each season that contains a variety of Seasonal items that might include decorations, dishtowels and previous crafts among other items. This is my Fall bin.

We’ll be sharing some Fall crafts soon.
