it felt like the first day of fall here in georgia...temperatures in the 60s, the sun shining brightly, leaves falling from the trees. both auburn and florida had a bye weekend, so we decided to take full advantage of the day away from college football by going to farmers markets and heading up to the north georgia mountains for a little hike.
we bought wonderful produce (peppers, swiss chard, napa cabbage, green beans, sweet basil, butternut squash, and the largest sweet potato we have ever seen) from the love is love farmstand at the peachtree farmer's market and crisp apples, a big pumpkin, and delicious tomatoes from jaemor farms. we also treated ourselves to a fried apple and a sweet potato pie.
we drove to black rock mountain state park in mountain city, georgia and hiked the tennessee rock trail. the hike was easy, but beautiful with spectacular tree coverage and great views of the appalachian mountains.
it was a perfect fall day spent with my husband and dog-ter. now it's time to go cheer for my red sox outside next to our chimenay.
