Pumpkins, Grapes and "Federweißer"

Typical fruits and vegetables for Fall, together with "Federweißer". Federweißer is some kind of really young wine - just a few weeks old - the fermentation had started but was stopped in order to have this young, sweet and fresh beverage; it nearly tastes like juice but it's hard to describe - I'm afraid you'll have to try it for yourself ;) . Photo taken at the market in downtown Wiesbaden.

Thanks for doing this--I lived in Wiesbaden as a US Air Force dependent during the 60s, and I love your photos. I check them every day and I just wanted you to know your efforts are appreciated!

You could make a lovely hearty pumpkin soup from those.

Pumpkin soup sounds good. In the Uk most pumpkins are only used for halloween and the filling is thrown! I know... :(
Good shot.

Hi ya, Faye!

I came by way of the Wiesbaden photo with the "doggie no-no" sign by the tree. Your comment made me howl with laughter. Of COURSE dogs can read... and write... as evidenced by this comment. Humans forever underestimate our abilities, but then... why ruin a good thing? Nap all day... bark at the doorbell.. it's not a bad life.

A juice from these? In France they are just used for decoration. How interesting. Would love to try!
