Another pumpkin shortage

If you live in the Northeast (as if you haven't had enough to worry about this year), expect your jack-o-lantern or pie pumpkins to cost more.

Seems like Hurricane Irene decimated the pumpkin crops there, and the markets are buying pumpkins from the Midwest to make up for the shortfall.

I also wonder if those of us in the Midwest will see higher prices, too, since farmers are selling off their surplus ...

Maybe I should check prices before I get in a hurry to use up the pumpkin in my freezer.
