It's been a tough year for farmers across the country.
"This should be about six feet high to seven feet, and it's really only three and a half," said Illinois farmer Vernon Stade about his corn crop.
The dry conditions haven't been as harsh on another fall crop, which is good news to pumpkin farmers, and families who enjoy the autumn tradition.
With clear skies over St. Clairsville Wednesday, the Ebberts harvested their pumpkins just in time for Halloween.
"We're going to get about six pickup loads," Jerry Ebbert told 7News Wednesday. "Which might be 1,000 pumpkins."
Jerry Ebbert and his wife Lova own Ebbert Farm Market in St. Clairsville. Their eight acres of pumpkin crop may be looking good, but they say there have been struggles along the way.
"They had a rough start," Ebbert said of the pumpkin crop. "It was so dry the early part of this summer that the pumpkins didn't come up very well and we had a lot of weed problems that we normally don't have."
According to Ebbert, rainfall saved his crop just in time.
"We've had some decent size this year and quite a good quantity of pumpkins," Ebbert said. "We'll have enough pumpkins for everybody we feel."
