Pumpkin-picking time has arrived, and Ohio growers say plenty are available despite crop losses caused by bouts of heavy rain.
Paul Fleitz of Fleitz Pumpkin Farm in Oregon, Ohio, tells The Blade in Toledo that production will be solid but can't compare to last year's bumper crop.
This season has been better for some than others. In Amherst, Leslie Gede tells The Morning Journal of Lorain that the weather at Gede Fruit Farm has been near-perfect for pumpkins.
Ohio is among the top pumpkin-producing states.
