Silverman's Farm doesn't GROW the pumpkins... they truck them in! So you'll notice the quote only tells about what they HAVE, not about how they got them!

A pumpkin patch is very difficult to clear after picking but home grown is so much more green but if farmers receive a tax break for farming their land they should grow the crop.

I think it's hilarious!
I just wanted to stir things up yesterday by going onto some lame brain topic..other than Sam vs Dan, and Where's Same, ETC...something on light note! And, sure enough, someone made that comment, but that's OK...now, let's get to our discussion..
You're right, we had snow last nite, and more expected next wk.
Gee, You're Getting Snow Again? I thought you had nice balmy weather.

So, I guess neither one of us can go pumpkin picking!!!!!~!~ hardy har har har

I'm beginning to think they're right...it all has to do with the global warming...it supposedly is shaking things up...
Look at all the states that didn't have ice/snow, etc.
Icebergs are melting leaving little room for polar bears and seals, little critters on mountains have to move higher up because it's too warm or cold for them..
If we want to save the planet, we really all have to pitch in.
There's too much plastic waste in the ocean, they opened a beached whale and found plastic, pants, and other things you'd never imagine in his stomach...I saved the article...don't have time to list everything right now

You are always wrong, so shut the HELL up and go away.
Both you and Zelda are A-HOLES BA$TARDS who have nothing better to do then insult Sam and his friends. So, shut the HELL up, because we are tire of your stupid comments and insults.
