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.

UNUSUAL THRESHING OPERATION: This picture shows a threshing outfit that is seldom used in Washtenaw county or vicinity. It was taken on the Clayton Carpenter farm on Chilson Rd., three miles north of Lakeland, where nine acres of cucumbers were ground up for seed last week. The cucumbers are being shoveled into a hopper by Willard Wiltse, a neighboring farmer. The seed and juices are sifted out in the revolving wire cage, falling into a moat lined with gunny sacking, and the residue is being shoveled away by Mr. Carpenter. The horse at the right is operating a treadmill, which turns the grinder and sifter.
