It’s been a wet year and that may make pumpkins in short supply this year.
Cooler days and wet weather found farmers planting later in the year with many heavy rains drowning the first crop planted in July.
Paul Parsons is owner of Parsons Farms Produce in Dagsboro.
He told the Salisbury Daily Times that those rains caused many of his July and August pumpkins to rot.
Meanwhile, Tim Bell, owner of Community Organics in Greenwood, told the paper that he had lost some winter squash and pumpkins to insects.
