Wo ho hoa, hold up now. We hit the squash jackpot today at Green Acres Farms in West Olive, Michigan. This dandy farmers market stand is a must...as in I must stop and pick up local Michigan produce on my way back to Chicago. Who could pass up this friendly sign?
The market is surrounded by a moat of stunningly beautiful mums and pumpkins. I could already smell the apples from the parking lot as I approached the building. Inhale...exhale...ahhh, the sweet smell of autumn in Michigan. I have never seen such an extensive collection of curcurbita and apple varieties in my life. Here are photos of some new-to-me squash, you better believe I came home with a car load.
