It’s a sign of the season. Nothing says autumn like a bright orange pumpkin. On Oct. 9 at 1 p.m., the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture will show farmers how to grow the best varieties of these fall fruits at Pumpkin Field Day.  
Pumpkin Field Day takes place at the West Tennessee Research and Education Center in Jackson. Here UT AgResearch vegetable experts will introduce participants to more than 80 pumpkin varieties they have been evaluating throughout the year. Those on hand can learn what kinds of pumpkins do well in the area and what it takes to produce them.
Pumpkin Field Day is a free event. The West Tennessee Research and Education Center is located at 605 Airways Blvd. in Jackson. For directions or more information on the field day, visit the Web site: http://west.tennessee.edu.
