  1. It is wonderful that farmers can sell their produce in this way, and the pictures are lovely. I guess this is not your garden? 😉

    • Yes, it’s not my garden, but I just love to pass by it. You can actually just leave your money in a jar and take your produce and go, believe it or not! The farmers aren’t actually there to receive anyone, so they just trust whoever stops by to leave their money if they take something. Very few places still like that in the world, I bet.

    • Thank you, Chillbrook. I couldn’t get over the size of some of those pumpkins. 🙂

  3. How marvelous —– or hell ? 😀
    What people going to do with them ? —– going to cook everyday the same for one week or more ?
    Or keep it for Halloween lantern ? ( It’s a totally different culture Japanese has no idea)
    Your relaxed (rather ordinal approach) photos are a breath of fresh air, like the crisp color tone here.

    • It is marvelous, definitely. Mainly because the farmers are offering their produce for sale, and are trusting people to leave their money if they take something. I pass by this place every week on my way to an animal shelter where I volunteer, and I always see different things. There is a jar where you can leave your money, if you’d like to buy something. Lots of people will buy their Halloween pumpkins here, and their pumpkins and squash for fall meals here, too, as well. 🙂

  4. #2 is my fave, though I really like the arrangement of #1 too.

  5. These photos are as fresh as the fall air! I can feel it just looking. What really nice photos. 🙂

    • Yes, the air here is losing its humidity and taking on a wonderful fresh, crispness. It seems these pumpkins and squash are a bit early this year to me, maybe because we had such warm and wet weather so early in the season. I love this little place because the owners just leave a jar out for people to leave their money in if they decide to buy something. Very few places like that anymore!

  6. Man, I love this time of year. These shots remind me of my home back in Maine. Every year we got to a pumpkin festival here in Hungary, just to wax nostalgic about home. Thanks for the shots!

    • Yes, it’s such a nice time of year. I, too, have a family home in Maine–my parents live there. I usually only have the chance to visit in the Winter and Summer, though. I’m glad you enjoyed the shots! Thanks so much for dropping in and leaving such a nice comment.

    • It really is a beautiful place. I drive by it once a week, and it’s nice to see how things change there throughout the seasons.

  8. Wonderful images Melanie. I really like the last one of the squashes arranged under that gorgeous old tree!

    No frost on those pumpkins. Very effective compositions. Enjoying the use of colour & variety in these shots. 🙂
