Don't worry -- your kids will have plenty of pumpkins to carve into jack-o-lanterns and you'll be able to bake your favorite pumpkin pie. Despite the rumors, there is no shortage of pumpkins this fall. While there are fewer pumpkins, there are still enough of them to go around.
Fewer pumpkins are making it to the stores because of the weather conditions this year. According to Time, a wet summer on the East Coast and endless rains from Hurricane Irene definitely resulted in fewer pumpkins. But fewer doesn't mean none!
Time reports that pumpkins are down 25 to 50% in some locations, but pumpkins are grown across the entire United States. And, if all else fails, Time says that we'll get them from overseas.
Whew! Now that you know there's no pumpkin shortage, how about a few pumpkin recipes?
