We’re all sorry to see summer go. So we’ve resolved to keep our summer mind-set through autumn. Read on for 50 ways to enjoy the fun of fall in Chesapeake Country.

1. Pick Fall’s Fat Crabs     Crabs have been scarce all season, hard to catch and accordingly pricy. About this time of year, we usually get a bonanza.     In autumn, Callinectes sapidus are bigger, sweeter, cheaper and more plentiful. Buy a dozen or a bushel at a roadside stand or a seafood market (they’ll cook them for you) and invite your friends over. Or bring your crab hunger to a local crab house.

While very hungry, the webworm caterpillar won’t harm your trees

It’s the fall webworm that’s eating your trees from the comfort and security of webby nests.     The greenish larvae’s appetite is huge and undiscriminating, extending to 636 different species of trees. Redbuds, walnut, hickory, fruit trees and some maples are favorites of these fuzzy worms.     Late summer through early fall, when the larvae are most active, is prime time to spot webworms chowing down.     The webs they spin over foliage give them netted protection against predators as they feed.
