Perfect Pumpkin Picking Weather

Amarillo, TX - This Fall weather makes it a perfect time to pick pumpkins.

The Maxwell Pumpkin Farm planted 12 acres of pumpkin seeds this year, that's more than double of what they planted last year. And even with that, owners of the farm say the pumpkins are going fast.

They add finding the perfect pumpkin isn't what it's all about.

"It's just a great activity for families and it seems like there is not enough of those where mom and dad can take the kids and do something with all of them together," Larry Borger says, "It's either for the little kids or adults. This is something they can enjoy together."

"You get to spend quality time with your family, and you get to select the different sizes and different types and it's a lot different than picking it out of the bin."

The cost of each pumpkin depends on the size and weight.

The last day to get pumpkins at the farm is October 31st, and of course it will not re-open until next September.
