Squash

The Family Farm 2015-11-27 7

I don't have any new local material so I need to pull from this and that. This is a run-down but colorful wagon that my sister-in-law, Pat, keeps beside the farmhouse in Kansas, full of a variety of squash. Just for decoration.

This made me curious about the origins of the word, since it has another, very different meaning in English. It's more complicated than you might think

Pumpa in Swedish. Nice looking old wagon.

A wagon with character!

A blogger I follow regularly looks at word origins... some of them have very convoluted roots.

This is a beautiful photo, Bob, and well-composed.
