Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.
~ Linus, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Every year since my oldest was a tiny newborn baby we have taken the kids to pick their pumpkins at the pumpkin patch. It's one of my favorite traditions and we take pumpkin selection very seriously. Each child must be able to carry their own pumpkin. Here what our 30 Minutes of pumpkin selection looked like at our local organic farm.
