"The month of September also marks the 'Wine Moon,' the lunar cycle when grapes are harvested from the arbors, pressed and put away to become wine...The full moon closest to the Autumn Equinox is known as the 'Harvest Moon,' since farmers would also harvest their crops during the night with the light of the full moon to aid them."
Moppets are mopin' as schools reopen. Nights are crisp, and apples crisper; in the wind, there's just a whistper of what's coming. Rain drumming, warm but steady, mutters, "Get ready."
