I've got about 55 left to sell. Prolly take them to work with me next week and display them there.
But I've seen a wide range of prices this year? It's been an excellent year for pumpkins in this area. I've seen several farmgates with For Sale signs on their pumpkins. Prices range from .50 for the very small orange pie or jack-o-lantern types to $6.50 for a 20 lb upright for carving. One place has already scratched out their original pricing and substituted a discounted list..
I'm just going to sell the ones here for cheap to get rid of them.
My bil and his two 6 year old sons grew pumpkins the last two years to sell. They have very small ones for 50 cents, $4 for medium and $5 for larger ones. Their pumpkins have been colored up for some time now, and we were afraid they wouldn't sell well this early, but they have done pretty well so far. Doesn't really feel too much like fall around here yet if you ask me. It was hotter than blazes yesterday. Still waiting for a frost to knock the weeds down so I can set it all on fire.

TY. Then I'm not far off the mark when I say .50 cents for small and a couple of bucks for medium to large. They asked me today at work when I was going to bring in some. Guess I better do it in the next few days. It's Canadian Thanksgiving this coming weekend, so I bet if I take some in on Wednesday, I'll sell some of the smaller ones for table decorations between now and Saturday.
This year in this area they are going anywhere from .50 for small "baby boo" types to $5.00 for upright jack o' lanterns and all prices in between 5-10 for odd types like rare winter squashes.
Some large "cheese pumpkin" types I've seen for $12
