Produce at the Amish Auction

My mom and stepdad took me and the kiddo out to St. Charles, Minnesota to see the Amish produce auction. My stepdad was out there to make a purchase for the country club he works at in Stewartville. After checking out the goods, he settled on some flying saucer squash (AKA pattypan squash).

He got all that squash for $24!

The only deal with the auction that I found problematic for the average person would be the quantity in which the items are sold. I don’t quite have a need for 21 quarts of pickling cucumbers, for instance. Or seven pints of raspberries. Let’s not discuss the pounds of onions!

The produce is gorgeous. So maybe if I lived here, I’d figure out what to do with the mass quantities.
