Autumn squashed

Taft Farms is a family owned farm stand in the Berkshires located near the Housatonic River and Monument Mountain.  In season they have fresh produce, greenhouse plants, Christmas Trees, and a delicious bakery with killer cider doughnuts.

Cinderella pumpkins are named for the coach that carried the romantic duo.  These fiery orange pumpkins look like exotic cheese wheels.

Striped squash are striking in their markings and bold in shape and look fantastic in galvanized containers.

A flock of goose-neck gourds are more fantastical than their avian counterparts.

Related to the squash, these pumpkins are notable for their delicate ribbed markings.

The rough textures of squash form wonderful patterns.

Which one would you choose?
