Good Gourd!

Updated: Apr 15, 2019

Twin Cities west-siders, there's a wonderful resource for fantabulous fall essentials located just west of Loretto on Hwy 55. Head to Knapton's Farm & Orchard for a huge assortment of freshly harvested pumpkins and gourds at MUCH better prices than in-town stores. Load up your wagon with fall fare and then go bonkers when you get home. Gourds are glorious as centerpieces, in fall containers, on your mantle, grouped together on your front really can't overdo pumpkins and gourds. While you're there, grab a $10 bag of their Honeycrisp apples. And say hello to Farmer Knapton for me.


My name is Heidi Pearson. I'm a mom of four and a freelance lifestyle writer and editor by trade who's created content on everything from facial creams to 401Ks. I'm also a field editor and photo stylist for the Better Homes & Gardens family of magazines, which puts me in touch with lots of pretty spaces, places, insights and ideas. Even better are the handy tips I learn daily from the wise and witty women (ages 8 to 83) in my life. Add it all together, and it's a lot of things worth falling for. Hence, Tumble + Swoon. If you have a swoon-worthy something I should know about, let me know!
