The best places to go pumpkin picking in the Midlands

Halloween is right around the corner, and that means only one thing ... it's pumpkin season.

Plus, experts say that a pumpkin lasts for 5 days once carved, making today the perfect time.

Whilst carving spooky faces is the main event, the insides can be used for soups and pies to really give you the autumn feels.

There are so many places across the Midlands that still have pumpkins ready for picking.

We want to see your pictures! If you are particularly pumpkin-proud when it comes to carving, or just have an eye for a good picture, send us your pictures on our Facebook page!
