Crop experts: Pumpkin yield has been off by about a third this year, which could cause a shortage this Thanksgiving

Your Jack O’ Lanterns will probably be safe, but your Thanksgiving pies might not be.

Pumpkin is the in-demand crop of autumn, from pumpkin spice everything (Starbucks’ PSL now actually contains pumpkin!) to pumpkin pies and Jack O’ Lanterns, ‘tis the season of the orange gourd.

But according to Illinois crop experts, U.S. farmers’ pumpkin yield has been off by as much as one-third this season.Fortunately, your lattes and carved pumpkins are safe this month, but by Thanksgiving we could be facing a serious shortage of canned pumpkin, according to the Associated Press.

“I would not wait until Nov. 20,” University of Illinois professor Mohammad Babadoost said, referring to Thanksgiving. “I’d buy it whenever it comes to the store.”

Approximately 90 percent of all pumpkins in America are grown in Illinois. Farmers are blaming the record rainfall in June for drowning their crops, and a spokesperson from Libby’s, an Illinois pumpkin processing plant, is saying, “Once we ship the remainder of the 2015 harvest, we’ll have no more Libby’s pumpkin to sell until harvest 2016.”


Simple And Subtle Fall Porch Decor

With this being 2020 and all that entails, I wasn&rsquot quite sure which way I wanted to go with my fall porch decor this year.

Do I deck out my porch like I normally do with all the traditional festive fall trimmings?

Cornstalks, mums and loads of pumpkins. Generally looking like fall has thrown up all over the place.

Or go for a more simple fall porch look?

Calming and peaceful. A gentle hug from Mother Nature saying yes, this will all turn out OK.

Sure, there may be murder hornets coming to invade us and a giant asteroid hurtling through space may kill us any second, but we can still decorate our front porches, right?

In the end, I decided to go with a less throw up, more huggable fall look that is made with things that should be easily found at your local grocery store or can be DIY&rsquod.

And if an asteroid hits my house, there will be less pumpkin guts and cornstalk husks for the neighbors to clean up.

I took the color scheme from my barn quilt I showed you how to make last week.

Everything is pretty much yellows and greens. Not a glowing orange Jack-o'-Lantern in sight.

Although I did pick up a slightly greenish-orange gourd for my pumpkin stack.

I was going to do a whole tutorial on how to stack pumpkins, but then I thought you might think I've gone mad. You stack them on top of each other, right?
