Could this be the year of the green jack-o'-lantern? Typically during early October, visitors to the pumpkin patch at Andrew Lohr's farm in Harford County look out over fields filled with vibrant orange gourds ready to be picked, carved and placed amid Halloween decorations. But while a group of schoolchildren visiting the Churchville farm had the run of plenty of bright orange pumpkins, they also stumbled upon many others that were dark green, pale blue or flesh colored. Not only is the color off schedule this year, but the yield of the Maryland pumpkin harvest is down, too, a result of heavy rains in spring that delayed planting and a heat wave in August that thwarted pollination.

Three Harford farms have an excuse to get scrubbed up this weekend, as they invite the public to join them for Farm Visitation Day from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Lohr's Orchard, Mount Felix dairy farm and Holloway Brothers beef farm will open their doors to visitors. The day's wagon rides, tours, refreshments and machinery displays will teach people agricultural basics, said Ned Sayre of Waffle Hill Farm, president of the Harford County Farm Bureau. "It's at a point now where not a lot of people come from a real close farm background, so they really don't know what all's involved in farming," he said.
