What better way to show your love of the Fall season than decorating your porch or entryway with beautiful pumpkins in varying shapes and colors? If you buy them early, the selection is better. The dark orange pumpkins are a favorite. They contrast perfectly with their albino cousins, the white pumpkin. Some people – we are not naming names – even drive out of state to score the perfect assortment of these colorful gourds.
The question is, how long will they last? If we have an Indian Summer, it is possible you will discover a mushy mess on your front doorstep long before the season ends. Here is our verdict – Yes! It is worth it to purchase them as soon as you see them at your local farmer’s market or favorite grocery store. Usually the prices are reasonable, and you will find the prettiest, largest pumpkins of the season when you shop early. If they don’t last, buy some craft pumpkins as back up!
