Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Everywhere!
“When you see me in the fields,
My orange glowing in the sun,
It’s time to say goodbye to summer
and hello to autumn fun!!”
Pumpkins are showing up everywhere around the market these days – big ones, little ones, green ones, orange ones, oblong ones and round ones. Not only do they make great decor for you, but they can also be the main ingredient in a variety of meals and desserts. They are even good for you – stocked full of vitamin A and E.
