I went pumpkin hunting the other day and couldn't find any pumpkins. Usually there are stands full of big orange pumpkins everywhere, but not this year.
My husband travels alot through the week and I told him about this so he said he would look for pumpkins for me. He was in Virginia and Maryland and said ~
"here in the serene farm country north of Frederick, Md you can find some. If you are in the area and on Rt. 15 North swerve right at the Old Frederick Road and follow the great pumpkin signs to Ramsburg Road and pull on the steering wheel hard to the right. Look for the big spider at the Ramsburg Farm and Voila'a - pumpkins. You can pick some in the pumpkin patch or find some in the barn where the cat is and some other fall items including decorative and exotic guords. How bad is the pumpkin shortage? It's on the front page of The Frederick News-Post." (Oct. 3) Well, there you have it! He's bringing home a pumpkin for me too!
