PUMPKIN TIME




PUMPKIN TIME -  Greg Bentley of Payne Gap, weighs one of his prize pumpkins. He says when he planted his one-acre field during the spring drought he was afraid the crop would fail. To his surprise he has a bumper crop of approximately 1,500 pumpkins. He may have trouble keeping up with the demand, however -  one customer has ordered 500 to resell. His biggest pumpkin is 24 inches high, 30 inches in diameter, and 7 feet, 3 inches in girth. It weighs 171 pounds. Bentley is active in the Elkhorn Shrine Club, the Jenkins Homecoming Days Festival, and the Cumberland Mountain Arts and Crafts Council. His pumpkin will be exhibited at the Indian Summer Folk Festival at the Little Shepherd Amphitheater site Oct. 5 and 6.
