Fall is certainly in the air. The days are getting shorter and the nights crisper. Soon we’ll see frost on the ground, signaling the end of gardening season. The change of seasons also signals the change of business attitudes. In one big box store the employees fervently stocking the shelves with Christmas decorations. My goodness, the leaves haven’t even started to change yet.
