As Halloween approaches, we went pumpkin shopping this weekend in Northern Virginia and had a randomly difficult time finding more than a few church parking lots or nurseries with pumpkin patches. This wasn't the case on Long Island, NY when I was there two weeks ago. Every half mile was another place selling hundreds of rows of the orange gourds. So next year when you're pondering where to buy your pumpkin head out to Long Island. If you're on the West Coast though, that might be a bit of a trip, so I've heard the place to go is Half Moon Bay and the Pacific Coastal Highway where they apparently thrive from the sea breezes.
