ST. LOUIS (AP) - It’s been a tough year for pumpkin growers in Missouri, and buyers can expect to see significantly higher prices this fall.

KMOX Radio (https://cbsloc.al/1O7WpuO ) reports that the wet summer and dry fall combined to make things hard on pumpkin farmers. Fewer pumpkins are being grown, and their size is down.

Ag expert Tim Reinbott says the price of pumpkins is nearly double the price from a year ago.
