Fresh in September
You’ll find fewer and fewer farmers markets open in September but seek them out if you can. The Miami County Farmers Market is open through September, Saturdays, 10 am to 2 pm, at N Broadway and E 5th Streets, rain or shine. (In the event of rain, you’ll find the vendors inside the museum.)
Apple season peaks in September. Look for apples that are free from blemishes, have no bruises, and feel firm in your hand. If the apple peel is dull, it may be old. Wash and dry apples as soon as you have them home, then place them in your refrigerator crisper drawer.
Carrots are always a hit at our house. Yes, you can buy a bag of baby carrots, but you may be surprised at how much more flavor you’ll find in fresh, whole carrots. They’re what I choose for soups as the weather starts to cool. Look for bright orange color and smooth skin. Avoid carrots that are limp or are black near their tops—they aren’t fresh. Choose medium-sized carrots that taper at the end. Especially thick carrots may be tough.

Writing is different for me than it used to be when I had to steal my hours at the keyboard from other times of the day, from social life, probably from my family--and no, that's not an easy thing to admit. But nowadays, although life is busy and for the most part happily so, I'm in the office as soon as I've finished that ten minutes of housework I require of myself. Sometimes fifteen if I've fallen behind. I worry about deadlines and sometimes push them a bit, but I never really reach the "I'll never get this done in time" point. I almost always have my column (if it's a new one) or guest blogs or my own blog posts ready the night before.
But it's 7:16 on Tuesday morning right now and I haven't written the post for this, my own blog, where the deadline is self-scheduled. But I've told people I'll post every Tuesday or beg a friend to do it in my place. However, I forgot to beg this week. I was busy enough I didn't write my own. It's not fair to anyone that I too often use essays I've used before. What to do, what to do.

The first half was a very intense game. both teams tried to score a goal but neither team was able to do it. During the second half, North Miami came on very strong and took control of the game.
Gavin Dyson scored our first goal of the evening with a beautiful heading. Jon Stoner took a corner kick and Dyson was in the right spot to put the ball in the end of the net with his head. Then later on one of our speedy players, Trevor Blakely got a pass from Carson Rexroad, dribble some of the defenders, confronted the goalkeeper, went around him, and put the ball in the left side of the opponent’s net.
