The title for the article is actually "Passion for Pumpkins." The heading above is actually the subhead, which is why it may not seem to make quite as much sense. Also, the photographer is actually Dina Samfield, not Karen Riggert.
The photo above this article in the printed version has an inaccurate caption. That photo is unrelated to the pumpkin story and should read "Kaylin Patterson Soar and Grace Soultanian investigate the hooks on a burdock fruit that enable it to hitch a ride on an animal. The class took part in a workshop called Seed Travelers that was funded by the Ayer Shirley PTO.

Great article on my Brother in laws pumpkin growing passion Thank You! It is one of the things we all as a family look forward to every year and that is the updates on Dave's pumpkin growing season. A couple corrections for the record.
The cute girl Dave was introduced to while covered with dirt one day is my younger sister and at the time before they married, she was Cindy Lou Collette. The Children are Daniel and Julie Marie. Audry, as mentioned in your article is Julie's good friend.
It is so great to hear about how the students are learning so much about pumpkins in the various ways mentioned here in your lengthy and interesting article!
Thanks for sharing it all with us!

Thanks for the corrections, Norm. My son and I were taken with the story, as well as with Mrs. Lynch's "passion for pumpkins," which she extended into the classroom. The kids had a great time studying the pumpkins and really learned a lot.-- Dina Samfield
