Heavy rainfall damages pumpkin crop in Tennessee

Rain is usually a welcome sight for farmers in the summer, but excessive rain in eastern Tennessee is bad news for pumpkin growers.

At this point there would usually be thousands of pumpkins in each patch, but they say they'll be lucky to get a fraction of that amount this year.

Most farmers have lost at least 80% of their pumpkins this season.

We'll have to wait and see how things turn out here in Colorado, where we're having a completely different problem: a drought.
