When the pumpkin patches opened back about a month ago, the colors were so bright. Those oranges, blues, yellows all shone so radiantly. The kids were so excited to be able to pick out the one they liked best (then Mom or Dad would switch it to a perfect one).
Now, the pumpkin sellers are just about tapped out. All the very best are gone, even the second best are gone. All that’s left are the lonely ones that no-one wanted.
If you can find a pumpkin patch that is still open, now is a great time to buy a few pumpkins that you can use for baking. I saw some yesterday at reduced prices.
Scoop out the interior, cook it up, and freeze it to use for those Thanksgiving pies, cakes and parfaits. Yum!
