Sunday Wanderings

From miles around, folks follow the road signs to Beth’s, a farm market with all things fresh and local. For me, it’s a 30 mile round trip worth every mile and the time it takes to get there.

This time of year Beth’s is a real treat as the market is loaded with much of what is perfect for fall decor.

There are pumpkins and gourds galore which makes it very hard to choose just a few.

Many of the pumpkins have names that are both perfectly descriptive

And tickle the funny bone. To tell the truth I didn’t think these were so ugly and added them to my cart.

No way were a couple of these being left behind!  Now there will have to be a ladies lunch to show them off.

Inside Beth’s is a wonderland of interesting produce all grown on the premises.

When there’s so much to choose from the real challenge is not to overbuy.

That’s a challenge I’m seldom able to meet as one of everything wants to jump in my basket.

When the basket can hold no more, I join the crowd in line and start thinking about creative ways to use everything. That’s part of the fun!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. We visited Beth’s on Friday. So much beautiful produce! Bought way too much, but couldn’t help myself. Did share with a friend, though. What fun.

  2. You were the first person to alert me to Beth’s in a blog post years ago!! Thanks have been going there for many a summer! The best!

  3. I would get in serious trouble shopping here! I had a lunch lady squash last year, but I’ve never heard the term “double uglies” for those pumpkins, that’s hilarious! Can’t wait to see what you do with your purchases!

    1. I can’t help but wonder who thinks up the names. Most of the ones I bought have been on the table. They provide wonderful inspiration for easy table setting.
