HILLSDALE COUNTY – Pumpkins are ripe for picking and farmers’ markets and grocery stores carry their weight in the fall’s favorite vegetable for pumpkins and fall decorations.

Local pumpkin growers say they are seeing a successful harvest.

“We have a pretty good harvest, but we were a little worried that they would start to turn orange in August,” said local grower Tom Kolasa.

The weather factor is decisive in the region. Pumpkins prefer warm, dry weather, with rain at the appropriate times. Most growers say a little rain is needed when they are producing fruit and when they flower. After that, after the fruits are set, there is no need for much rain. Primarily, temperatures need to drop below 90 for the fruit to set.
