Not in Florida.
Gov. DeSantis is creating a new law that will protect the driver of a car that plows thru a pumpkin field killing anyone who is picking them.

You want good field picking, you go to Jones'. You want good apples and cider, you go to Lyman. You want a good market, you go to Bishop's.

Hah, joke's on them.  I grew my own pumpkin this year.  Sure it's only 4 or 5 inches across, but it's mine!  I named it Earl.  On Halloween I will sharpie a face onto him, break him open, and feast on the goo inside.

Not to threadjack, but I have a couple questions about that law.

1. If a protestor is open carrying a loaded firearm, and shoots the driver in self defense, are they protected by Florida's stand your ground law?
2. If the protestor is protected by the stand your ground law, where do we draw the line for someone peacefully protesting walking across intersections (when they have a walk sign) shooting at someone who brakes late?

That's easy.  Democrats and minorities are not allowed to use stand your ground.

But guns have rights too, so it's quite the conundrum.

I grew my own pumpkins this year. Big ones. 10/12 pound Connecticut Fields, and some smaller sugar pumpkins. I'm hoping the little guys will make great pies!

Nice!  My pumpkin plants got a really late start because I moved cross country in June, and was gifted some transplant sized pumpkins in mid-July that went into ~5 gallon containers.  To be honest I'm surprised to have any pumpkins at all.  Your pumpkins look larger than my containers.

Thanks! Yeah, the big ones couldn't fit in a five gallon bucket but I only got about six of them due to moisture issues. I got about a dozen of the small ones.

I have no idea what type of pumpkin plants I have.  I asked the neighbor who gave them to me and she said "just regular jack-o-lantern pumpkins."  They're pretty avid gardeners and have a few pre-teen kids, so I suspect that the seeds came from last Halloween's pumpkins and they were stored and grown as an experiment for the kids.

All of which makes the fact that mine is so small pretty embarrassing, or it would do if I didn't have the late start as an excuse.

Next year I think I'll grow pie pumpkins in hills in the ground.

Jones was good for Christmas trees. Lyman's makes great pies. Silverman's had awesome apple cider too, last time I went years ago.
