Pumpkin riot, Rodoni Farms

Pumpkins rioting at Rodoni Farms, Santa Cruz, California (10/06/2019)

In an extraordinary event Sunday morning, 1,200 ripe pumpkins began rioting at Rodoni Farms on Sunday, sending local pumpkin pickers fleeing in all directions. The pumpkins initially swarmed across the upper fields, turning over bales of hay and a tractor before making a break for the farm’s pickup truck. This photo was taken moments after the lead pumpkins realized that their lack of hands would make hotwiring and driving off with the vehicle impossible. Rodoni Farms declined to comment on the incident, but did announce they would soon be selling fresh-baked pumpkin pies.
