Its Pumpkin Time

Today, I drove to the butcher shop, and on the way home, I found a place that was selling pumpkins.
Driving down the long driveway, I found a house and along the fence line were the pumpkins for sale.  No one was home, therefore I was on the 'honor' system.


And to keep the honest people honest; this sign was right above the money box.



They had quite an assortment of pumpkins and prices.


Some gourds and a few squash were also for sale.


I chose three pumpkins, one for each step of the porch that leads to our door.


Just wait until you see how I decorate those pumpkins... but that's for another day.  Because I did say I went to the butcher shop and now I have meat to repackage and put away!!!

Driving out of the driveway, this sign made me chuckle!!!



And that's the way it is.........(in Northern Wisconsin)

  11. The pumpkins look great. My sister had a packet of pumpkin seeds that were labelled as the sugar/pie pumpkins, but they turned out to be huge. Her grandkids will have some nice jack o'lanterns out of it anyway.

  13. Those are some good prices for very attractive pumpkins. The prices here in the San Joaquin Valley are much higher. Or, have been in the past. I've not seen any pumpkins for sale yet this year. What with our drought, there may not be as many grown, and the prices may be much higher than usual. If I can get them for $5 a piece, I usually buy 3 for the front porch.
