Regardless of your personal feelings about pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin season is here.
During this hour of Talk of Iowa, Linda Naeve of the Value Added Agriculture Program at Iowa State University Extension speaks with Charity Nebbe about the squash family, where to find pumpkin patches, and the many dishes pumpkins can create.
"I'm a pumpkin fan myself," Naeve says. "There's pumpkin muffins, pumpkin squash soup, there's pumpkin scones. You can put pumpkin in just about anything and, I think, make it taste good with those spices."
Later in the hour, horticulture expert Richard Jauron joins to answer questions from listeners with Naeve.
