I took a day trip and went on a pumpkin seeking mission. I was successful!


Ahhhhh........what a beautiful sight.


This was the cutest farm market.


Gourds galore!


Mini pumpkins too.


Mums


And beautiful corn stalks.


Freshly harvested new potatoes.


Every kind of squash imaginable.


Decorated for Fall.


Giant Indian corn.


Teddy was as excited as a little kid.


When it was time to leave she laid down on the parking lot and wouldn't budge. It took a lot of coaxing to get her to leave.

Tomorrow I will show you what I bought.

The sight of all of those Fall goodies make me a little giddy. I wouldn't want to leave either. :)

Congratulations to Anastasia!

I wish we had farm markets like that over here. Some of it may be sold at gardencentres but at a price that is way to high! I simply have to start earlier next year with sowing my pumpkins and perhaps some corn and squashes too :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Congratulations to the winner!

By accident I have found two Halloween paper lamps today in a shop and I feel myself so happy because this is not at all common here:) usually You cannot find any Halloween-related things anywhere:)

Lovely pumpkin pics. Harvest season is so stimulating.

Millie said...

I must say I love when you share your outings. It keeps giving me more ideas and motivation as I plan my own farm market. I am jealous because our wet summer has not been good for my pumpkins.

Your market looks wonderful! Our market only had one vendor with pumpkins last week. Hopefully they will start to show up soon (pumpkins and gourds).

Have a great Sunday! :)

That book looks gorgeous. I would love to have it. That farmers market looks amazing. All those beautiful pumpkins and gourds.

I don't blame her! I wouldn't want to leave either! That's funny--squirrels getting the corn. I thought that was actually an artistic display. hee hee
Fantastic finds! Love the autumn colored casserole dishes with the wheat--wow!

Hi! I've been so busy! Set up my art at a couple of local fairs, even played guitar at one.
Beautiful photos and I love farmer's markets. Soon it will be apple time, sure you will have some recipes to share :)

I looked at the recipe in the book you are giving away, oakmoss oil and pheremone oil..... wow, i have never seen those before. Looks like a wonderful book. You sure know how to find treasures when you are out and about, this post is overflowing with them!
