Pumpkin Season

If September brings us apple season, October brings us pumpkin season. Pumpkin season lasts through November. Keep out the decor and keep baking those pumpkin desserts.

To embrace pumpkin season, you can: organize a pumpkin activity, cook with pumpkin, buy pumpkin-flavored products, and decorate with pumpkins.
