Warts: Better on These Squash than on Your Nose
This ghostly, warty white squash isn't exactly cute, but it's the perfect all-natural decoration for Halloween.
Here's another warty white oddity, and I wish I'd caught a better picture of the starfish-shaped squash at the bottom left. All of these warts were on display during our recent visit to Knapp's Farm in Greenbluff, WA.
Most people try to hide their warts when visitors are coming, but Knapp's Farm brought them all out to show off. Well, at least the squashy ones.
I was amazed at all the beautiful color combinations on these squash.
I should have bought some to bring home, but it was hopeless to try and pick favorites. So I just keep shooting pictures instead.
We did bring home some highly anticipated, new-crop Honeycrisp apples. If you've never tasted Honeycrisps, you are missing out on the most amazing apple ever. I don't know why anyone eats Red Delicious anymore with Honeycrisps around.
This basket sported warts in several stylish colors on squash with highly varied shapes.
I saved the best for last. Just try to tell me that this lime-green apple-shaped warty wonder isn't the cutest thing you've ever seen. Thank heaven my face doesn't look like this, but all those warts are so fun on a gourd.
