Perfect rain for pumpkin growing is happening at Bethke Farms this year.  The pumkin crop  looks like it will make great pumpkin picking fun in Grand Haven and kids from all over come out to find a perfect pumpkin. 

Some years rains spell disaster for pumpkins.  This year (2009) the rain is coming while the pick your own pumpkins are setting  fruit and putting size on those fruit.  The cooler temperatures seem to be helping to fend off pumpkin disease and the crop looks like it will make Grand Haven the place to go to find a pumpkin.
