PEDIGREED PUMPKIN - This giant orb, weighing in at 222 pounds, is rooted in hefty tradition. Grower Linda LeBlanc of Belleville bought the seeds from a Nova Scotia grower who is listed in the Guinness Book of Records for his beefy pumpkins. LeBlanc has been growing big pumpkins to sell as 'conversation pieces' for the last three years. This one, displayed at the Ypsilanti Farmers' Market on Saturday, was priced at $50. LeBlanc will hold her own 'pumpkin factory' Oct. 1-31 at her farm at 16421 Elwell Road in Belleville. The Halloween theme will include pumpkins, cider, Halloween masks, candy and pumpkin pie.

Down at Jorgensen's Farm, 12671 Carpenter Rd. in Milan, there are 35 acres of pumpkins just waiting to be turned into jack-o-lanterns for that scary holiday coming up at the end of next week. Making sure they got the pick of the crop Saturday were the Kryscynski family, Davey and Jamie and father Al. But obviously they left plenty for anyone else who'd like to pick one right off the vine. The Jorgensens also have gourds and Indian corn available to add to your autumn decor. More pick-your-own opportunities will be listed in our Harvest Food Guide on Wednesday.
