Find the Zucchini
I love autumn. Love it.
I love the weather in autumn. The morning chill. Cuddling under blankets in the evening with a book. I love the start of a new year (yes, still on academic time). I love wearing sweaters and my birthday is in the autumn. Knitting with wool is infinitely more pleasing than knitting with cotton and the mums bloom in autumn.
All these things make autumn hands down my favorite season. But you want to know what the very BEST part of autumn is? Well, I'll tell you. In the fall I get to play Find the Zucchini. Awesome. Yep, every morning in the autumn I run up to the orto for an exuberant game of hide and seek with the last survivors in the otherwise dead and weed-encumbered garden, the zucchini.
The orto in autumn
This guy almost beat me.
And there's nothing I like more after a lively game of Find the Zucchini than some egg, salami, and zucchini pasta for breakfast.
