FMTSO ‘Fruits of the Season’ (Harvest Festival 2014, part 2)

As the month of May is not a season of fruits here, I’m taking you back to the Harvest Festival in September. There was so much going on back back then that I think I left some pictures unposted. I did a Part 1 , but as far as I can find, I never got round to Part 2. Here it is.

    1. Yes. You must have a longer harvesting season in Florida than we do here, though! Even if perhaps not the same products.

  2. I could do with a course on fungi and the insect hotels are great.
    I am surprised there is no free cake though.

    1. Of course there was free cake, Adrian - or apple pie. (It was served in Part 1, follow the link...)

  3. Some of those mushrooms look like trumpets! The man with the white beard and mustache appears to be arguing about them (whether they are poisonous, and maybe to lower the price) I would love to walk through here with you. I don't remember any of these pictures. But I DO remember the giant exclamation point!

    1. I don't think I've posted any of these exact pictures before, Ginny. But there may have been similar ones from other years. And probably more than one of the sculpture.

  4. Mmmm I imagine the scent of all those mushrooms! That is just one of the many things I like about autumn.
    No fruit in your area just yet? It is more or less the same over here, at least where things are left to develop at a natural pace. But the strawberry farmers in this area, and especially on the Rhine plains, where it is always warmer than anywhere else in Germany, are already selling their own produce, no doubt helped along by elaborate systems of heating their fields.

    1. The strawberry season here does not usually start until shortly before Midsummer, Meike - and lasts through July or so. Of course with greenhouse cultivation it may be prolonged a bit. Actually there was a short notice in the media a couple of weeks ago about an auction of the very first Swedish strawberries of the season. One very small basket of them (greenhouse cultivated) was sold for about 90 Euro or more... (to some luxury restaurant, probably). The ones sold in the supermarkets at the moment are imported from Spain. They're big but taste very little.

    1. Yes, they kind of sum up the summer past, don't they. Good just to still have that season in front of us here, though! ;)

  7. What can I say other than 'YUM!'.
