Farm Stand Produce
The season for wonderful Michigan vegetables is rapidly drawing to an end. Today we drove west towards Manchester, viewing the stunning fall leaves, stubble fields and fields of dried-up cornstalks, and the migration of various birds. We stopped at Fusilier's Farm Market on Herman Road, where there's a haunted corn maze and many pumpkins, some decorated, others waiting for customers who will decorate them.
|Field tomatoes and bell peppers, picked before the frost, stored in the barn. Probably the last Michigan outdoor-grown|
tomatoes we'll see this year. The entire market is suffused with the aroma of donuts.

|Few plants remain in the greenhouse.|
|We saw flocks of ducks and geese at Thorn Lake on Arnold Road near the Farm Stand.|
As you drive the last few miles to the lake, the bright yellow trees arch over the road -- illuminated!
|The maple we planted in our own garden years ago has beautiful leaves now.|
