Lois Gritt McCray overlooks rows of mums that will be popping with color by the weekend. Those who visit The Pumpkin Patch can also enjoy slides, swings, corn and hay mazes, hayrides, corn bins, games and other activities.
Plump pumpkins will be ready for plucking when the pick-your-own patch opens for the season on Saturday.
