I put this "Autumn Discovery Basket" together for Bright Eyes, three weeks ago. Remember the Volunteer Tomatoes, I fermented?
We also had some Volunteer Squash. Our entire deck was taken over with them. It was amazing. Nye helped me collect at least 20 of the gourds and we used them to decorate for Halloween.
They also have made a terrific, textured material for my 6 month old to hold and gum. I just made sure there were no hard stems to break off.
Pretty and free...what's not to love?
