Lots of fall-type things: squash, sweet potatoes, and decorative gourds and corn. I expect the car will be riding very low on the way to market …

Speaking of decorative corn, I should note that while I’m selling it as decorative corn, it is perfectly edible. In fact, more than … many of the “decorative” varieties taste way better than the standard cornmeal you can buy in the grocery store. The only cornmeal we use in our house comes from these varieties, and I hope I never have to go back to the standard cornmeal. But eating this corn would require having a way to grind it, and so my assumption is that most people will primarily use it for decorative purposes. Hence that label.

If you’re looking for something unusual (at least for this part of the world) to experiment with, I’m also planning to bring some roselle this week. Preparing it requires more finger work than some things, but we’ve become quite fond of the flavour of roselle calyxes in our house and so think the work is worth it. — Sydney
