It was blustery and the winds were gusting mightily when I left the house this morning on my walk. I left later as I wanted to pop in at the Lincoln Park Farmer’s Market to take some pumpkin photos, but there were no pumpkins or unique-looking gourds to be found. I saw a few Spaghetti Squash and Butternut Squash, both of which are rather blah looking, so I just wandered about taking in the displays, while getting a flavor for Fall, and snapping a few pictures as I meandered through the Market. There were rows and rows of maple syrup and honey, perfect for drizzling on pancakes or cornbread, and, I saw specialty baked goods like homemade apple cake from the veggie vendor where I took these shots. The Farmer’s Market flags were whipping around furiously and looked like they might fly right off the pole where they were anchored. The vendors were still selling personal watermelons, peaches and pears, and some apples as well. Hard to imagine eating watermelon with the temps as low as they got last night. I have to make a trip to the cedar closet for some warm woolens before I venture out tomorrow. The “Farmer’s Almanac” Facebook site suggested the Autumn months are as follows: October – breezy, November – wheezy, December – freezy. They got that right!
