No pumpkin for halloween?

Well, this just is’nt fair!!!

There seems to be a shortage in Pumpkins this year so the kids may go home with a gourd instead of the traditional orange pumpkin.

Mr richard of Cox farms, one of the largest seller of pumkins on the east coast says: “It has been a weird weather situation, usually we have no trouble at all getting brokers to bring us pumpkins. But Pennsylvania farmers are seeing yields down 50 to 70 percent. We have as many as we need to get through Columbus Day weekend, our busiest time, but we are concerned about what will happen next week. Gourds may be great for Mom and Dad, but not such a good souvenir for kids.”

Well that just seems sad.

But the sadest, is the part that is going to hit everyone and there growing belly at Thanksgiving time

The pumpkin pie, may take a hit by Thanksgiving. Last year’s weak harvest in Illinois, which leads the nation’s pumpkin industry, has led to a shortage of canned pumpkin.

So I guess this means I can skip some gym sessions, or perhaps blame it on global warming
