The Great Pumpkin Conspiracy

I hope you all like jack-o-lanterns petite because this years crop of pumpkins is looking to be puny and not so pretty. (Read the story here.)

I think, and that I bothered to come to this conclusion is a testament to my powers of procrastination, is that the pumpkin cartel meet this past winter in some secluded mountain retreat and decided to spread the news that big, juicy color saturated pumpkins would be in short supply so they could whip up public demand and jack up prices. I wouldn't put it past them.

All I know is I'm going to invest in PLASTIC pumpkins for my holiday needs and the kid is just going to have to get over it. The one on the left is available at Target and has sparkles! I'll take sparkles over green fuzz any day.
