business news in context, analysis with attitude

The New York Times reports that pumpkin production is down for the second straight year, and that “scorching weather and lack of rain this summer wiped out some pumpkin crops from western New York to Illinois, leaving fields dotted with undersized fruit. Other fields got too much rain and their crops rotted.”

There is a bright side, at least for retailers. Because the supply is limited, it is reported that prices are higher than usual.
