Carnival Squash and Blooms
Today's image is titled Carnival Squash and Blooms and was photographed by Robb and Jessie Stankey.
Harvest time is here, and farmers of all types are bringing in food from fields, gardens, and plots of all sizes. "Apparently our carnival squash plant loved our plot at Eagle Heights Community Gardens so much, it has become weed-like," note the Stankeys in the caption to this photo shot a couple of weeks back. "More than half our plot has been over run by the plant. We pruned it back to about half its size. Tonight's dinner will consist of baked squash and stuffed squash flowers. Delicious!"
A list of farms and business that are busy with harvesting can be found in the new edition of the Southern Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas, which is available at locations throughout Madison and beyond.
