Fall Country Vegetable Stand - 10/11/2013
Sigrid and I were traveling to Branson, MO for a long weekend stay in early October. We were between Warrensburg and Clinton, MO on Highway 13 when we saw an orange glow coming from a yard alongside the highway. It was hundreds of pumpkins basking in the early morning light. The glow was amazing. We drove by and about a mile down the road, we knew that we had to turn around and go back to the stand.
The couple who owned the stand actually have a small nursery as well as a large vegetable garden. The variety, size, and color of the vegetable was amazing.
This was before Halloween so the witch was fashionable at the time.
The display was very cleaver....a huge squash dressed like a cowboy.
According to Woody, the owner, a Confederate soldier was hanged in this tree during the Civil War.
Keeping watch over the pumpkins.
We talked for an hour with Woody and his wife about their operations and the history of the house.
Back on the road to Branson.
