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.
