There was an assortment of squash - turban, butternut, and acorn along with ornamental gourds including swan and birdhouse. He had Cinderella, Ghost and pie pumpkins of all sizes! This is his second year of selling gourds, squash, and pumpkins,his biggest cash crop is usually his cantalope and watermelons. The items are displayed in their front yard and if no one is home customers are asked to make their purchase and leave their money in a can!!
