ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR GOURD????
No, I don't mean crazy. . .I'm referring to having access to some real gourds! In October the gourd of choice is most likely Pumpkin (well it's actually a squash). Here are some pumpkin facts:
* Pumpkins are a fruit, in fact they are the state fruit of New Hampshire.
* Pumpkin seeds provide protein and zinc. They are believed to lower cholesterol and lessen
the inflammation of arthritis.
* The self-proclaimed pumpkin capital of the world is Morton, Illinois, where 85 percent of
the worlds canned pumpkin is produced.
* A 1,689 pound pumpkin believed to be the largest ever, was grown in 2007.
TRICK or TREAT will soon be upon us. . . TIME TO CARVE THAT PUMPKIN SOON!!!!
