5 Places To Get Pumpkins In The Berkshires
I was driving my oldest son back from school on Thursday and pumpkins were on the brain. "Hey, Dad, when can we get a pumpkin", he asked. Yes, it's that time, I mean it maybe too early yet to carve one, but, certainly you can get one for the front steps.
Pumpkins originated in Central America and are actually considered a fruit and a squash and, apparently the seeds contain some medicinal properties. For most of us, though, they make great fall decorations and a mean tasting pie!
