California Pumpkin Purchase for Halloween


When September comes around, you'll see pumpkins taking over in grocery stores and markets everywhere. They come in plenty of shapes and sizes but most of us don't know a Knucklehead from a Moonshine, do we? It sounds more like the Three Stooges Meets Andy Griffith Show than types of pumpkins that you can buy.

Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival includes the biggest pumpkin. Does 1,500+ pounds sound big enough?
