Pumpkins in Short Supply This Year

The tropical systems, Irene and Lee, that dropped a ruinous amount of rain on Upstate New York and elsewhere in the Northeast have caused devastation to this year’s pumpkin crop.
Wholesale prices have doubled and farmers are searching several states away to get pumpkins to fill the demand for Halloween.

The damage is so severe, wholesale prices for a bin filled with several dozen pumpkins have doubled to between $150 and $200 in areas such as upstate New York, according to the AP.

If you do happen to get a hold of a pumpkin or two, here’s a great recipe for pumpkin soup.
