Sasser-- Fall allergies aren't fun, but the cooler weather is a welcome break from the summer heat.

To mark the first day of autumn, workers at Mark's Melon Patch in Sasser harvested pumpkins Tuesday morning. Picking the traditional fall fruit is getting them in the mood for fall fun.

Owner Mark Daniel says, "This morning, the first day of fall it's exciting when you wake up and walk outside and its like 58 degrees or whatever it was after a hot summer it's just exciting, I love it."

The up-coming weekend marks the start of the annual Halloween activities at Mark's Melon Patch. This year, more than 6,000 pumpkins will be harvested.
