pumpkin on a stick

Jake’s mom and his aunt came to visit and we had a lovely weekend.  The weather was warm and wonderful.  And our weekly trip to the farmers’ market yielded some interesting results:

Pumpkin on a Stick!

I had never seen anything like this before, and after doing some intensive research (i.e., Googling it) I found out that they are actually an ornamental eggplant.  But they sure do look like tiny pumpkins. They were kind of hard to photograph using my mediocre photography skills and our mediocre camera, so I took many, many more pictures of them than was necessary.  But I think you can get the idea.

So now this scene is making me ridiculously happy every time I walk into the kitchen.  Favorite curtains, tiny [eggplant] pumpkin sticks in a milk bottle, little [real] pumpkin on the windowsill.  Ah.  Happy Fall, everyone.
