It's almost kind of sad, isn't it?

Kylee said...

Sue ~ Yes! This is a large field belonging to a local business and when I walked back to it today to take this photo, I was amazed at just how many decorative squashes and pumpkins were still laying there. Hundreds...

A pity, could have used it for soup.

Greetings,
Filip

I wonder how many will reseed?

Lona said...

Seems like such a waste. Too bad someone couldn't have used them.
Wishing you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving Kylee.

Kylee said...

Darla ~ I would imagine a LOT. This is a really big field and no matter what they put in there next year, there will be a lot of these come up.

Lona ~ I heard that the business that grows these couldn't get anyone to go out and gather all of them up! I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving, too, Lona!

I've heard this referred to as "green manure". And it seems a good way to return the nutrients to the soil to be reused.

There's also the potential for lots of different critters to enjoy eating some of the produce. Deer especially enjoy pumpkins and squash.

Kylee said...

Peg ~ And there are plenty of critters out here in "God's Country" to enjoy them! :-)
