Pumpkin patch practices and gourd garden grooming.

I figured I purchased 700 pounds of pumpkins this year. I was wondering if people get discounts if they purchase all at once from the same farmer? It might save me some money next year.

I do. I head up to a particular pumpkin farm that lets me drive right out to the field during the week and load up the truck. We then drive the truck down to the local fertilizer plant that has a scale and we just weigh it that way. Because I'm buying bulk and it's not any extra work for them they cut me a pretty good deal. I get them from between .15 to .20 a pound which is waay cheaper then anywhere else around here.

I wish they sold by the pound here. Instead for a 10 - 20 lb. pumpkin they charge 8 or 9 bucks, some places even more. They will mark them down a bit just before Halloween, but by then the choices are slim. :thumbsdown:
