trader joe's pumpkins

I know a lot of families have a cherished fall tradition of going to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins (pumpkin patch guide on Richmond.com). We never started that, so I love to get a great deal on our pumpkin(s) at Trader Joe’s – $3.49 for a quality good sized-gourd. If you need one, or need extras, check it out!

What’s your favorite place for pumpkins?

My oldest is so excited about pumpkins this year – he even drew me a picture of exactly what kind of angry-faced pumpkin he wants me to carve!

(If you love pumpkins, Trader Joe’s has the hook-up! Pumpkin soup, pumpkin pancake mix, pumpkin bread mix, pumpkin butter, organic canned pumpkin…)
