Nature's Creations

During the Stark County Fall Festival drive, we found Ryan Werkheiser's wagon set up in Wyoming Illinois.  Ryan is a new entrepreneur at Nature's Creations featuring annuals, perennials and succulents.  This fall he has a bumper crop of specialty pumpkins, gourds, Indian corn, broom corn and corn stalks. 

OK, nothing special about the fall offerings EXCEPT they are unusual, beautiful, healthy and priced very reasonably.  Plus, you get the chance to help a neighborhood kid get started in business. 

The only problem I had was not buying every single variety of every single thing!

Ryan is open Wednesdays during the fall season (9-19 through 10-24) 10 AM to 6 PM.  He'll be at Jordbruksdagarna in Bishop Hill Sept. 29 & 30.  Knoxville Illinois Fairgrounds on the Spoon River Scenic Drive Oct. 6 & 7, 13 & 14.  Oct. 20 at the Galva Craft Show in the G.H.S. building. 

Now:   Beautiful day outside, everything washed beautiful and clean from yesterday's rain, and I've got pumpkins and gourds to set out. 

As I was taking pictures, they started combining corn in the fields around the house.  A sure sign of fall even if there wasn't a pumpkins within the state.
