We had a long period of drought this past summer and the big apple tree in our back yard has yielded barely any fruit. It's odd. Last year, I was picking up apples and filling 30-gallon barrels. This year, I haven't had to pick up a single apple. There were so few that the deer, raccoons and other critters got them all for me (thanks, critters!).

Leaves are falling off the trees very late, though. We can rake leaves into the street until mid-November, but a lot of the trees still have quite a few leaves. I'm guessing another week or so and they'll be bare.

I planted about a hundred bulbs last weekend and am looking forward to spring to see if I did it right!
