Pumpkin Trail

It seems like only yesterday that the Easter Bunny hopped down the Bunny Trail, but now we are on another kind of trail, searching for pumpkins. Pumpkins are among the most versatile of vegetables, suitable both for decorative and food purposes. They are rich in beta-carotene and low in calories and saturated fat. Even their seeds can be roasted for a flavorful snack. But perhaps they are most sought out for their use as Halloween props, transformed from useful food stock to fanciful goblins.

In fall, they can be found in virtually every store but it is much more fun to take a sunny autumn drive to seek them out at one of the many farm stands that dot Litchfield, Berkshire and Dutchess Counties.
Here are some—certainly not all—of the places to pick a pumpkin.
