Welcome Back Fall!!!!! How I Missed Thee...



Fall is officially here today!!!!

Hey one and all,

My gloriously, beautiful and God blessed bestest season of all, I really missed you.

Fall is that perfect time where the temperature is much more comfortable, you can still have warm days and then crisp, fresh, cool one's, you sleep better, noisy air conditioner's can finally be put away, and all the delectable bounty comes into it's own.
We went to a farm out in Dunham that had all these cute little pumpkins, I need the young, small, sweet, not all fibrous one's for a jam recipe I want to test out.
The farm is called: Ferme Racine & Fils or in English, Roots & Sons Farm.They had this kiosk set up off the side of the road, people were stopping in to get all the best and fresh, just picked, offerings.
 I spotted the pumpkins, which I thought it was a bit too early for but the farmer says they are coming out now and are great!
 Look at the different types of kale, melons, it is really nice to see produce go straight from farm to your table.
 I liked the old fashioned metal wheel poking out behind the yellow post. It seems a farm or rustic look is not complete without one of these things.
The orangey yellow things on the left in the above pic, are ripe cucumbers. I had no idea that they do that and am now fascinated about finding a recipe that uses these. Let me know in the comments section if you have any clue what to do with these bad boys.

 I managed to score 3 bebe pumpkins for $1.00. I got a bag full and grabbed some scrumptious fresh corn too.

 I love that there was a corn tractor that we got to go and pick our fresh corn from. It was 6 for $2.50 and man was it good, I only ate it once though because corn is really not good for my eczema and more than once is pushing it.

Well, now that it's fall official, I am off to start crocheting some new scarves like the one below, and wear my cooler weather hats, along with getting some warm weather products made for the Etsy shop and recipe posts all ready for you readers.

Have a lovely and blessed day, and take a moment to appreciate the gorgeous things that nature is up to.
