“Down south, even our vegetables have some pig hidden somewhere in it. A vegetable isn’t a vegetable without a little ham hock.” — Paula Deen.

This is the time of year when supermarkets all over the country are brightening up their produce aisles by proudly displaying colorful gourds and squashes of every conceivable size, shape and color in the hopes that the magic of the upcoming holiday season will include one of these tasty offerings.

The conspiracy begins in early October as pumpkins begin to magically appear in display cases. Charlie Brown’s Great Pumpkin promise takes shape and children look at each innocent pumpkin as a Jack-0-lantern in waiting to be proudly displayed on Halloween .

This is a colorful time of the year despite the shorter days and colder nights. — gc
