Each weekend in October tens of thousands of people throughout the northeastern United States drive to the country in search of the perfect Jack-O-Lantern.
They climb onto hay-wagons
Children are carefully escorted down the steps and then bolt like deer into the fields.
They run squealing with delight as the search for the perfect pumpkin.
What once began as orange balls has been transformed into colors and shapes sometimes unrecognizable as pumpkins.
Pumpkin or Gourd?
Add to the mix the hybridized gourds and squash and Autumn’s splendor cannot be eclipsed.
At one of our local nurseries, Cihylik Farms and Greenhouses, pumpkin picking is in full swing.
All shapes and sizes are available for sale. Let us take our perfect pumpkin home! ENJOY!
