A soggy start and warm end to summer apparently has led to the "optimal pumpkin season."


That's according to a professor of horticulture at Cornell University, who says spring rains mixed with a mostly dry September "have resulted in good size and an excellent, deep orange color" for pumpkins throughout the region.
 
Professor Reiners says this fall's selection is deep and should provide pumpkins that not only last to Halloween, but should be good through Thanksgiving.
