Since the dawn of mankind, we’ve been kinda obsessed with apples. For tens of thousands of years apples have been a large part of our diets and our cultures. Blamed for the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, credited as the source of immortality by the Norse Gods, reproved as the cause of the Trojan war, and an all around great way to get drunk in America since the settlement of Jamestown; as it turns out, apples and people go together like, well, apple butter and smearcase for instance.
Apples, A Brief History
Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Yeah, if that name were Apple Pie. Apples are a member of the rose family. DNA analysis shows that apples originated in the mountains of Kazakhstan, where the great ancestor of today’s domesticated apple still grows. How we went from that sour, practically inedible apple to the shiny Red Delicious we know so well is a long history of finely tuned cultivation and cultural impact. Apples express extreme heterozygosity, in short, the apples grown from a seedling won't be anything like its parents. Reproducing a particular variety of apple requires a process called grafting.

Its starting to cool down out there, meaning it's time to schedule your furnace for a check up from your local HVAC professional before the leaves begin to change.
What Might a Tune-up Include?

Why Service Your Furnace?
Furnace malfunctions can be costly and dangerous. Regularly servicing your furnace will help you avoid getting blindsided by exorbitant repair costs, or ending up without heat when you need it most. Regular service will also ensure that your heating system is running as efficiently as possible, so you know you're getting the most out of that heating bill you have to pay every month. If you find yourself sad about the cost of your annual furnace maintenance, remember that you’re going to much more upset if you have to pay for emergency service in the middle of winter.
Remember to always contact your gas provider IMMEDIATELY if you smell gas and make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working.

Just because it’s cooling down doesn't mean it's time to pack up the lawn equipment. Quite the opposite in fact! Fall means it’s time to prep your lawn for winter to ensure happy healthy grass come spring. This is a critical time for the health of your lawn, if you look forward to walking around barefoot in the lush grass of spring you need to tend to that grass now. Here are some things you should do this fall to ensure your grass is greener on the other side of winter.
We are all eager to put the mower away for the winter but don't get too eager. Your grass will continue to grow until the first frost. Letting it get too long before winter is a good way to set yourself up for sad grass come spring. Optimal grass height for the cooler months is about 2&½ inches. Too long and you risk fungi growth, like snow mold, appearing at the end of winter. Too short and you inhibit root growth. So keep that mower running at the correct height until Jack Frost makes his first visit. When it's time to pack it in don't forget to winterize your mower to ensure that it’s ready to go come spring.
