DUBLIN — Growers of pumpkins in Bladen County, as was reported in a story on Friday, may very well have experienced a slow season because of early summer rains. But there are pumpkins to be had in the area.
One of those places is at Burney Farms Garden Center & Nursery on N.C. Hwy. 41 in Dublin.
“We’ve got plenty of them,” said W. Steve Burney. “We’ve got some of the prettiest pumpkins you can find anywhere.”
He added that the pumpkins they have are the dark orange, taller type.
“They are perfect for carving, with the nice stem on top,” Burney said.
Burney added that he gets his pumpkins primarly from growers around the North Carolina mountains.
“But this year, we also have gotten pumpkins from Indiana,” he said.
With only a few days left before Halloween, Burney says his supply of pumpkins remains good for those who may still be looking to carve those front-porch jack-o-lanterns.
