With only two weekends left to pick up pumpkins for your annual

With only two weekends left to pick up pumpkins for your annual cosmetic surgery job, and Saturday looking like it might have a few sunny patches, it’s time to schedule the annual family pilgrimage to a nearby pumpkin patch. More and more local farms are setting up patches with hayrides, farm stands, and ornamental-squash markets, finding them a great source of direct income. Ignoring the money you spend on gas, it’s cheaper to pick up giant pumpkins at the source, and your kids will reap the educational benefits of firing a pumpkin cannon seeing where their jack o’ lantern was born. Red Tricycle has just put up a long list of pumpkin patches around the area. My own family trip got rained out last weekend, but when I Twittered a request for recommendations, the patches that received the most votes were South 47 Farm, Remlinger Farms, and Jubilee Farm (not included in the Red Tricycle list).Bonus link: Toasted pumpkin seed recipes.
