Fall is just a couple weeks away, many people are breaking out the fall decorations. Finding the perfect pumpkin is one of the hardest parts and if you don't grow your own, you may need help finding where to get one.

The Wyoming weather sometimes makes it sometimes difficult to grow the perfect pumpkin in the Cowboy state. Not saying it can't be done and there are many that do, but it's a little more than just tossing a few pumpkin seeds in the ground and waiting. With late spring snow storms, cold temperatures, cold soil in the spring and average first frost in mid to late September, Wyoming is a short grow period area and planning needs to go into planting your pumpkins if you want them to be ready for fall. If you're interested in trying your hand at pumpkins next year, Garden.org has all the information you'll need to properly give it a shot.

If you're like me and don't have the time or room to grow a garden, there are many areas that have done all the work for you. Wyoming has some very skilled pumpkin growers, some that grow pumpkins that weigh well over 1,000 pounds. Probably not one you'd like to have to carry around and carve to decorate, but neat to see.

Once you find the perfect pumpkin, it's time to decorate it. FarmFlavor.com has great tips for you to make sure you get the longest life out of your masterpiece of squash art!
