What’s your pumpkin picking personality? Plump and vividly orange, perfectly round, large and in charge or misfit and misshapen?
No matter whether you like to carve, paint or leave it in its original state…
The first step is finding that personal porch perfect pumpkin; it’s practically a right of passage for the fall season. There’s a magical fall feeling seeing the sheer delight of little ones running around, and watching them attempt to pick up pumpkins they couldn’t possibly lift!
Find a pumpkin that's perfectly you this fall at these 10 BC pumpkin patches and farm markets:
