Find Your Perfect Pumpkin

By: Katie Goncalves | September 26, 2022

It’s pretty hard not to feel tempted to buy a pumpkin this time of year. They’ve been prominently displayed in front of just about every store for at least a month at this point. While it’s easy to just pull any old orange pumpkin out of the big cardboard box at the grocery store, there’s something magically fall-feeling about strolling the pumpkin patch and picking the one that’s just right. Whether you prefer pumpkins that are tall and skinny or short and squat, you’re sure to find the perfect pumpkin at these amazing Detroit area pumpkin patches…
