Macaroni KID Pumpkin Picking Tips:  We can have some funky weather in October it can be freezing cold and blazing hot and often in the same day. If you want to avoid the heat head out early. Mornings and weekdays are not only less busy, but for sites that charge fees week days also cost less. Keep your pumpkins inside the house till we get closer to Halloween, you don't want to risk them rotting in the heat or rain if any comes our way.
