However, I spent a week in Vermont recently and it was so nice to experience cooler temperatures.
Near my son's farm is a maple farm - Morse Farm. They make their own maple syrup on their property. One day as I was passing by to go to their house, they were working on this cornucopia.
The cornucopia (from Latin cornu copiae) or horn of plenty is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts. Theirs was overflowing with pumpkins.
This was NOT your average cornucopia - it was hugh.
I did not measure it, but you can see that they use corn stalks and they are tall. They are placed all the way to the end.
They have an iron structure underneath all of those corn stalks. I am not sure you can see it, but they placed 5-6 boards inside of the cornucopia to hold the pumpkins.
It is a lovely site to see this large cornucopia as you drive past the Morse Farm. So maybe you don't have a large corn stalk cornucopia overflowing with pumpkins, that's OK. It's fall and time to decorate your own way. Have fun!
