Cooler weather means pumpkin shopping isn't far away.
Where do you buy pumpkins?
Do you choose convenience (and sometimes price) over experience and pick them up at the grocery store? Or would you rather trek out into a dusty field and choose your own perfect specimen?
I admit, I'm a member of the latter camp. I prefer picking out the squattest, wartiest pumpkin I can. Its size generally corelates with the distance I have to carry it back to check out, but I don't care.
Pumpkin shopping is yearly tradition I want to write about during my first few weeks as a features reporter at The News-Gazette. Leave a comment about where you shop for pumpkins, and we might be able to use that information in the paper in coming weeks.
