Substitute teacher Gloria Vernendaal displays a painted pumpkin to her student, Garret Arderdeen, during the Great Pumpkin Patch at Jordan Valley School Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014, in Midvale. The annual pumpkin tradition is for students with disabilities to enjoy pumpkin picking. The pumpkins were raised and picked by inmates from the Utah State Prison.

Jordan Valley School students got into the spirit of fall Tuesday by picking pumpkins — which were grown and decorated by inmates at the Utah State Prison. Students with disabilities at the Canyons District school will participate in the annual tradition, which involves teachers and parent volunteers in the pumpkin-plucking event.
