It's starting to look a lot like fall in San Antonio.
Local pumpkin patches are popping up ... like the one at University United Methodist.


"It's fundraiser for our student administration department and we have big and little pumpkins, big and little gourds,"
says the church's day school principal Michele Casstevens.

She says that the patch will remain open through Halloween.

"A lot of people come and take pictures and then they come later in the month to buy them because they worry that if they carve them, they won't last that long."

Pumpkins, big and little, are for sale as well as a wide variety of colorful gourds.

"Any of them that go bad, people take them to feed the deer.
And any of the good ones, the San Antonio Food Bank comes and picks them up," she says.

Many pumpkins are less than a dollar.
