It's the great pumpkin, Bill Reynolds

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Bill Reynolds can't help but smile when he looks across the rolling hills blanketed with brilliantly colored chrysanthemums, gourds, Indian corn and pumpkins at the 106-acre Reynolds Farms in Washington Township near Waynesboro, Pa.

Daily from mid-September through October, the farm bustles with families, school groups and other visitors picking pumpkins from 31 acres filled with 14 types of the fall fruit, choosing flowers from among 58 varieties of mums, and sifting through bins of maize and gourds under Reynolds' retail tent. Children also enjoy a free play area that includes a 30-foot "mountain slide" and petting zoo.

"I get to see everybody out here having a good time," Reynolds said. "And I love looking at the mums, so that makes it great."
