In Polish, "jesień" (YEH-shyen) means autumn. The autumn in Poland is approximately three months from September ("wrzesień") into October ("październik") and concluding in November ("listopad").
It is common to harvest the last of the fruits ("owoce") and vegetables ("warzywa") at the beginning of autumn. The majority of birds ("ptaki") head south and the sun ("słońce") begins to rise late and set early.
Autumn can be a romantic time of year, and Polish tables will be set with various types of meat ("mięso"), soup ("zupa") and other hearty fare.
