Visiting Central Missouri Product auction

Week before last we made a trip to the Central Missouri Produce auction near Excelsior Missouri. This is a Mennonite/Amish group that sells the most beautiful produce. 

 Chestnuts!!  

They referred to these as weed balls. The auctioneer said they are used in flower arrangements as you will see in the next picture. I'm not sure of the real name, because Google failed me here.


 Notice the bird feeders, and all the weed balls. 

Lots of gourds and mini pumpkins. The were big lots of big pumpkins but I didn't get a picture of them. 

 After we stopped at Weavers, our little Jeep wrangler was pretty full. 

Some of our beautiful purchase from the auction. We have already turned the 3 boxes of turnips into turnip kraut. Yes, kraut, I've blogged about it several times before, check it out here.   

A day in the country is always good. Life is good!
