The time to gather

Autumn is not only a time for leaves to change colors and fall to the ground. It is the time of harvest. It is the time where the toils of the summer bear fruit.
My grandparents had what one might call a "gentleman's farm" in its time. I can remember as a child standing in the rows of various crops picking vegetables or fruit. Picking one item is easy. By the time that the second hour passes, one understands and appreciates the work. If one did not know that they worked from the filled baskets and bins, their aching legs provided information.
Coming in from the field, the canning and storing commenced led by my hardy Dutch grandmother. But first, there were meals of the selected fresh picked. The preparation was outside, performed over fire. The service in the cool air was family style along long picnic tables. It was a celebration that the harvest had come in.
