Scroll down and leave a comment or linky to show off all the bargains you got this past week!
I went to the farmer’s market and spent $20 on all of the above. These were all grown without pesticides, so I can’t believe I got such a great deal. If I had gone down to the pumpkin patch at the local Church, who knows where my pumpkins would have originally come from, and it would probably have cost me at least $20 for just two pumpkins.
By going to the farmer’s market this morning, I have the satisfaction of having local, semi-organic pumpkins for a great price. The farmer also sold me this squash, that he called a “kushan” (sp?). I can’t find any info online about this, so I think I may be spelling it wrong. If you know what it is, please fill me in. UPDATE: Thanks for all those that let me know it is actually a “cushaw” squash. This thing is as big as my two-year old daughter!! He told me the taste is a cross between pumpkin and sweet potato. Doesn’t that sound delish? I can’t wait to make it down into a puree, and make some pies out of it.
Did you know pumpkin puree is really easy to make? And it saves me so much money by making it myself. I will make enough for a year and freeze it so that I can make pumpkin breads and pies all year long.

Please note that I do believe in supporting local Churches, but I also believe in supporting local farmers as well to get quality fruits in vegetables for consuming.
