(RUSHVILLE, Mo.) One pumpkin, two pumpkins, bumpy pumpkins, large pumpkins.Thousands of pumpkins are waiting to be picked as we head into October.
 
Even with the severe drought in Northwest Missouri, these pumpkins have no problems growing.

Family farm operation, Crockett Farms, has been planting pumpkin seeds for 19 years now.
 
They have 11 acres of nothing but pumpkins, gourds, and squash.
  
And even with the dry weather toward the end of the summer, mother nature has not jeopardized the fall pumpkins.

"They do like dry weather, probably could have maybe used a little bit of rain, more than we had, but can't complain. I mean we've had an awesome crop," said owner of Crockett Pumpkin Patch Andrea Crockett.

Crockett farms still has thousands more to pick. They're open seven days a week from 10am to 6pm.
