Harvest Time in Bishop Hill means Pumpkins from Nature's Creations!

If you missed Ryan Werkheiser, grower and owner of Nature's Creations, at Bishop Hill's Jordbruksdagarna, there remains opportunities to purchase some of his specialty pumpkins at these events:

Spoon River Scenic Drive
October 12 and 13
Knoxville Fairgrounds, Knoxville Illinois

Galva Craft Show
October 19

Galva High School, Galva, Illinois

Ryan's fields are still yielding a dazzling array of gourds, squash, and pumpkins. I found him hard at work arranging a rack of just-washed carving pumpkins when I caught up to him yesterday.

Ryan maintains a large retail display on
the Werkheiser family farm and is
open to the public on these upcoming Wednesdays:
 10/9/13, 10/16/13, 10/23/23
10am to 6pm
Other hours are by appointment

Nature's Creations
21229 North 500th Avenue
Kewanee, IL 61443

PS: Though I spend a ton o' time and money on products guaranteed to erase the wrinkles and bumps that time has added to my aging skin, I always seem to select the most twisted, lumpy gourds I can find! When it comes to these ornaments, bumpy is beautiful. I am pleased to report that Ryan has grown the most delightfully wild, weird shapes and sizes I've ever seen.
You won't want to miss 'em!
