Pumpkin Shortage in 2015?
It is a real thing that the country is dealing with for the holidays 2015. This could put a damper on your Thanksgiving dinner.
Seems there’s a pumpkin shortage, and while there should be enough pumpkins for Halloween ... there might not be any left for Thanksgiving. Which spells trouble for any fans of pumpkin pie.
Seems a record rainfall this June in central Illinois affected the crops. Bet you didn’t know that 90% of the country’s pumpkins came from Illinois. In fact, Libby, one of the major canned pumpkin manufacturers, reports that yields could be off my as much as one-third.
Bottom line: Stock up now! (Yahoo)
But do they keep that long? Not sure....
