Mary Busey, an 80-year old woman form Anderson, GA, has been sending pumpkins through the mail to members of her family for 40 years. She doesn’t package them. She just writes an address on the skin, affixs the postage and hands them to the window clerk.
Most of the orange beauty’s are small — one pound or so. But no doubt, they are met with incredulity as they pass through the system.
In those 40 years, just four of them have been damaged. That’s a great track record.
Her tradition started in 1972, when her eldest daughter left for college. It continued when the other three left and has never stopped.
