Pumpkins, Corn, Gourds = FALL

I will finally admit Fall is here. The once green rows of corn that I drove by all summer are now brown and some have been harvested. Roadside stands are loaded with mums and pumpkins. So I finally caved in and bought a few pumpkins for here and the restaurant. Yesterday, I visited Filasky's in Middletown. It is a local farm that has pick your own pumpkins and lots of other fall delights this time of year.

I found a few gourds to put on our mantle and browsed the unusual pumpkins and gourds around the farm. I have seen many of them before, except for this one. It was really neat how the orange and white colors were strung together. I bet it would be pretty lit up as a jack-o-lantern.

It was fun to just walk around and see the different shapes and sizes of the gourds.

These are fabulous photos! I carved our pumpkins last night, I'll post about them soon. I'm really happy to hear that the ring & run has caught on in your neighborhood! :)
