The colorful gourds I picked up in a mixed bag at our local farmer's market. I absolutely love going to the farmer's market for their produce and goodies like this. The produce is always bigger, better, and cheaper than the grocery store! If you have a farmer's market near you, go!! This bag was $3 and had nine gourds in various colors, shapes, and sizes. I saw similar bags for sale at the grocery store for about $5 but they weren't as colorful and didn't have as many gourds in them.
We're going to the pumpkin patch this weekend to get our big pumpkins. I'm looking forward to that! This is the first year we'll be carving a pumpkin with the kids. I can't wait to see how it turns out!
