Sasser -- We've had a little more rain lately and slightly cooler temperatures.

That's good for a popular fall crop.

This season's pumpkin crop is looking pretty good.

At Mark's Melon Patch in Sasser, pumpkins are already on display. Owner Mark Daniel says with a little more rainfall, this seasons crop should fair quite well.

"It's been kind of a dry start, but about the last month or so we've had a lot of good, timely rain right when the crop was trying to set. We've had a lot of extreme heat, so it was hard to get the bees motivated when it's 102 degrees. But it's cooled off a lot, and we've got a pretty good set out there. I'm looking for a decent crop, maybe a not a great one. Hopefully, Ill have enough to carry us through without having to buy any," said Daniel.

Each year Mark's Melon Patch produces more than one-thousand pumpkins. Daniel says an estimated 98% of pumpkin's he sells are for ornamental use.
