We found the most AMAZING farm stand this week.
We were traveling a country road to a little school out in the middle of now where for a soccer game.
The only sites in the distance were pumpkins and the farm stand.
I knew I loved soccer.
I love finding little roadside treasures like unexpectedly!
What a wonderful coincidence!
I had been thinking about buying some beautiful squashes and pumpkins to decorate with, and I was itching to find some great Mums.
Suddenly, there they were!
Such a blessing!
There were WAGON LOADS of squashes, pumpkins, gourds.
All at .35 cents a pound.
I could have brought home a truck load of stuff.
I could have shopped for hours, trying to choose just the right colors and textures.
I was swayed away from the traditional smooth pumpkins by the exotic squashes and gourds.
Mostly because we can eat the squash later.
I never met a swash I didn’t like.
We don’t have a ton of room on the narrow front porch, but there is enough space for a box display box.
Room for everything but the Mums.
I love Mums.
The colder it gets the more colorful they become.
They will last until Thanksgiving time. I usually pull them out after Thanksgiving, when I put up the Christmas decorations.
Thanksgiving really isn’t that far away.
The roadside stand also had these beautiful ears of Indian Corn.
They are HUGE, about 12″ long.
I love their deep purple and golden colors.
I thought about adding bows and trinkets to them, but I decided I like them just as they are.
I am a purist at heart, I guess.
Less is always more in my book.
Now all I need is to find some Kale.
Maybe we will come across another road side stand this week.
Enjoy your day!
