LAWRENCE, Kan. - It’s breast cancer awareness month and there is pink everywhere, including at one Kansas pumpkin farm.
The Schaake’s Pumpkin Patch in Lawrence grew pink pumpkins this year. The owners said they plant 94 different varieties of pumpkins, and one is pink. They planted the pink seeds in honor of breast cancer.
“We’re always looking for different colored pumpkins,” Sharla Dressler said. “I would say 90% of people don’t just buy pumpkins anymore. They want all different colors.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the pink pumpkins will go to the Breast Cancer Society.
