‘Farmer Bob’ has mastered art of growing pumpkins
Ten Commandments, Dinosaur, Birdhouse, Long Island Cheese, Yugoslavian Finger Fruit, Jack Be Little? If you are confused, as you should be, those are just a few of the things that you will find growing on the acreage around “Farmer Bob” Van Arkel’s home just off the Reasnor Road.
So what are these items with the funny sounding names Bob spends enormous amounts of time “babying?” Why various types of pumpkins and gourds, of course. The question is, why did he start growing them?
“This all started off as a competition — I work for the city, I work for the Fire Department as a paramedic and as a firefighter — and about two to three years ago, the gauntlet was laid down,” Bob said. “We were going to have a competition to see who could raise the largest pumpkin.”
