First, check out the Warlock Pumpkins:
I had no idea that such a thing existed.
BUT. Matt wouldn't let me get a pumpkin that was wart-y or covered in green veins. Or white. Or, really, weird at all.
Which was fine, because there were 5 carts like this:
And an entire other barn full of pumpkins for us to choose from.
Which, I spent an entire 30 minutes looking at, choosing, and changing my mind. I would have taken longer if I could have.
In the end, Matt, his coworker, and I all got beautiful, heavy pumpkins. Honestly, I never knew how heavy these suckers were until I had to carry them up 3 flights of stairs! But they are.
And. The best thing? We're going to have a pumpkin carving contest sometime this week. Because Matt's coworker? He's NEVER carved a pumpkin before. And we figured that the ripe old age of 30 was the time for him to start.
I was going to post for you the pumpkins that we bought, which are sitting there, so cutely, next to my front door, and I talk to them every time I go in and out (Hi Pumpkins! Were you good while I was out? Throw any large parties?), but then you'd have a fair idea of which pumpkin was mine. And as you, the magic internets, are supposed to be the blind judges of the pumpkin carving contest (which I'm hoping will have as many as 5 contestants) .
