Fall Harvest by Lisa W.B. Walker


I know it's fall when mom 
delivers butternut squash
With soil still clinging to it's skin, it's as fresh as fresh can be.

Fall means winter squashes ~ delicata, acorn and hubbard will take the place of summer squashes ~ zucchini, yellow crookneck and patty pan. Colors at the farm stand will change from cornflower yellow to pumpkin orange.
