It's a sign of the season. As of this past weekend, Tim's Pumpkin Patch in Marietta is open for business.
With all the flooding this year, there was an initial concern about the pumpkin crop but many of them survived and the ones that did grew huge, according to owner Tim Leubner.
"We have about a third less pumpkins, but the size is a lot bigger than last year," says Leubner.
The crop that really took a hit was the specialty pumpkins because those are more difficult to grow.
There's more than pumpkins at Tim's Pumpkin Patch.
"You can come here and feed the animals, you can get a funnel cake, you can go to the bakery, you can do a corn maze. We have a hay maze and we do campfires at night," says Leubner.
With farm animals, mazes, and food there is enough family fun to last a whole day.
Despite the rainy weather this summer, there's still plenty of pumpkins ripe for the picking.
