A quick stop to say only you can prevent Pumpkin Spice Latte

IMG_0880Pumpkins. I asked my tandem’s stoker to take a picture of a field of pumpkins.


Because we’re always riding through corn and soybean fields, even though we sometimes reverse our routes to ride through soybean and corn fields.

And yet pumpkins aren’t exactly rare in central Illinois.

Twenty-eight miles south of this Chillicothe pumpkin field, Libby’s Pumpkin processes more than 80 percent of the world’s canned pumpkin, according to the folks behind the Morton Pumpkin Festival.

I haven’t done a lot of research into this, but I believe the other 20 percent is label.

Or leftover soybean and corn fields.
