Great pumpkin picks. I love the prize story too. Every other year or so I get the urge to have a really big pumpkin. I could only persuade one child to come with me this year (you can tell mine are getting older) and we bought a pumpkin that weighs over 50 pounds. Like you, we picked it out of the pile, with our eyes only, but then had to figure out how to get it to the car. Fortunately the farmer’s market hired big strapin’ pumpkin hauling seventeen year old boys.
