Searching For The Great Pumpkin
(Le Mars) -- Looking for that perfect pumpkin? You may want to travel on County road C-12 about three and a half miles west of Craig to Diane's Pumpkin Patch. There, you will find hundreds, if not thousands, of the orange-colored gourds scattered across a three acre field. Diane Ten Napel, along with her husband, operate the pick-your-own pumpkin farm.
She says this year's pumpkin harvest has been one of the best in her ten years of business.
Ten Napel says the late summer hot spell also helped with the pumpkin harvest.
The pumpkin patch attracts several visitors to the farm.
Diane's Pumpkin Patch is open Friday evenings 4-6 p.m. Saturday's from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday's from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. During the week, Diane hosts several pre-school and grade school children from near-by schools.
