Autumn’s First Pumpkins Mark Summer’s Passing


There are still a few days of summer left, but signs of autumn’s arrival next week, like pumpkins and cooler nights, are all around. First-time pumpkin patch growers David and Sheila Glenn grew these pumpkins, some of autumn’s first, on the Glenns’ Ayr Township farm with the help of David’s brother, Michael. The Glenns have already sold 60 of the 200 some pumpkins grown, most to passing motorists. Sheila also grew longneck pumpkins that she’ll use in pies.
