Here you can see some more of the glorious bounty. I packed a crate full of good organic things. Beets, potatoes, rosy apples (those were a surprise too! everything seems to be a little early this year), onions in golden papery skins, and ofcourse, PUMPKINS. They deserve their own post label, actually. Yes, Pumpkins are a class of their own. One of my favorite words, and the welcome commitee for my absolute favorite season: AUTUMN.
Here are a couple of shots of my neighboring village where the farmer's market lines up in the town center every Friday. Today was especially beautiful; the sun shone, people were in a somewhat festive and friendly mood, and everything looked so fresh. How lucky we are to have so much. So much of all these delicious and pretty vegetables and fruits.
Here you see the village church with it's charming tower; in fall it looks even more beautiful, shrouded by trees of gold and red.
