Bad Pumpkin Crop – You Can Blame June

As we were dealing with a wet June, you might have thought it would affect your summer plans, but now it looks like it may affect your autumn as well.

This year, June was the wettest on record in the state and that meant bad news for this year’s pumpkins, according to abclocal.go.com. Some experts say the pumpkins were sitting in water sometimes for two weeks at a time. The same expert says the pumpkin crop this year was an 85% failure.

So what does this mean for you and me as the pumpkin picking and Halloween decorating season arrives? It means many of the pumpkins we’ll be “picking” won’t be from the Garden State, and since they have to be brought in from out of state, we’ll probably see some higher prices.

So, once again, the extreme weather we’ve been experiencing affects our lives in some way.
