Even if the climate outside isn’t playing the part, there is one thing that always puts me in a “Fall” mood – pumpkin. I’ll admit it. From now till Thanksgiving, I’m obsessed. I could blame Starbucks and their tasty Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but it goes much deeper than that.
Think about it. Is there another food that you are encouraged to gut, carve and then display on your doorstep? What other produce do people visit its “patches”? Nobody cares about overgrown cantaloupes, but a 1,810 pound pumpkin (the current world record) makes the news.
