Interesting Food - Pumpkins

Farmers are warning that there will be a shortage of pumpkins in the run up to Halloween.

(Following the ideal growing conditions in August and September, the heavy rain of October has put a damper on everything by making the pumpkin skins soft, which means they get soggy and collapse before they can be harvested.

In Germany there are lots of pumpkins, but they are smaller than usual, due to a shortage of rain.  Who'd want to be a farmer?)
