Signs of Autumn!

On one of my rides out and about this morning look at what I saw! It's just around the bend. Oh well, I knew it was coming.
I was wearing a light jacket because the temperature this morning at 7am was 44°!

The Goldenrod is especially pretty. Did you know that it is an edible plant?
Edible parts: All aerial parts of the plant can be used. The flowers are edible and make attractive garnishes on salads. Flowers and leaves (fresh or dried) are used to make tea. Leaves can be cooked like spinach or added to soups, stews or casseroles. Leaves can be blanched and frozen for later use in soups, stews, or stir fry throughout the winter or spring.

The above information came from the internet. Check the link below for more.

And my peach leather rollups came out GREAT! It was made of 4 cups of pure puree (no skins) with one tablespoon of honey added. It took a total of 16 hours at low temperature and I cut it into 8 sections and rolled each between plastic strips. We already ate part of one.
