On Deck - Tuesday, October 5, 2021
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Tuesday, October 5, 2021. Our top story is about how fall is finally here, and pumpkin patches are open and ready for business. WCBU student reporter Olivia Streeter talked with a few Morton pumpkin farmers about how they're growing… not only crops - but tourism in their communities. You’ll also hear how as the fall season rolls in; farmers are busy preparing for the next wave of harvests. But with the changing climate, it’s more difficult than ever to plan ahead. WCBU’s Jody Holtz sits down with Down River Farm owner Evan Barry to talk about the fall season, and how climate change has and continues to affect his organic vegetable farm.
