The pumpkin, one of the most popular crops in the country, is plentiful this time of year. You’ll find them patiently waiting at produce markets and garden centers hoping you’ll take them home.
Pumpkin popularity is at its peak during the fall holidays. Halloween would be amiss without them. Scary and funny faces carved into gourds and lit from the inside wait on porches everywhere for the trick-or-treaters. Then, as if by magic, pumpkins transition into pie and become the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a versatile thing for sure. And with its colors of green, white, and of course orange, the pumpkin is no longer relegated to just these two holidays. It’s becoming the cornerstone for fall decorating both inside and outside the home.
