Uncle Matthew’s Pumpkin Picking Tips by Timothy Dahl
A yearly fall tradition at the Dahl House is picking pumpkins to decorate for Halloween and Thanksgiving. Laura and her brother Matthew love to make an event out of it so whether we are driving through upstate New York or the California central coast, we always find a fun pumpkin patch and sometimes a haunted house (for Matthew).
With the arrival of our son Hunter we’ve taken pumpkin picking to the next level, including a 98 pound pumpkin that we just “had to have”, but no one picks pumpkins quite as well as Matthew. He has truly made it an art form and he has graciously shared some of his secrets to finding the best pumpkins.
Follow his tips and we can guarantee you’ll have the most unconventional and awe-inspiring batch of pumpkins around.
1. Don’t pick the pumpkin, let the pumpkin pick you
Like snowflakes, all pumpkins are unique. Every pumpkin in the patch has a specific person it is meant to go home with so don’t just grab the one closest to the checkout stand. Walk around for awhile and listen for the one that’s calling your name. In my opinion the weirder, lonelier, and more misshapen the pumpkin the better.
2. Drive, Drive, Drive, the further out of town the better
Its a well known fact that the best pumpkins live far away from the city. I think you will find that the further out of town you drive the more unique, (and less expensive) pumpkins you will find.
3. Leave the stalk
If you are lucky enough to find a pumpkin patch that lets you cut the pumpkins directly from the vine, do yourself a favor and try to keep as much of the vine as possible attached to the pumpkin. Nothing looks more enchanting than a pumpkin with its long twisted “umbilical cord” stalk still attached.
4. Never grab a pumpkin by its stalk
That would be like someone picking you up by your hair. It may seem like a perfect handle, but often times pumpkins are so heavy that the stalk will rip right off in your hand and the sad orphaned pumpkin will be left to rot on the pumpkin patch floor. Be kind to your pumpkin pals and in turn, they won’t come to life and eat you in your sleep.
5. Don’t forget the Gourds!
If you’re on a farm, then it’s likely they have a large selection of other fall vegetables on display, gourds, cornstalks, wheat bouquets and squash are the perfect finishing touch to your magical pumpkin collection. Tip: cornstalks should be brown not green
I BET THAT IF TWO KIDS LIVED IN THOSE TWO HOUSES THAT THEY WOULD COME OUT ON THEIR ALMOST CONJOINING ROOFS OUTSIDE THEIR BEDROOM WINDOWS AND TALK AND BE BEST FRIENDS AND FALL IN LOVE.
I will not write fluff to that. I won’t. No.
LUCY I FOUND IT
But what if instead of two kids, it was, say, a kid and an old woman? And at first they just ignore each other and keep their blinds down and curtains shut, but then the kid climbs out onto the roof one spring morning to get a frisbee and she’s got the window open bc it’s so nice out and she tells him to cut that out, it’s not a jungle gym and maybe the kid shows off a bit and nearly falls, and the old woman catches his arm…. anyway, so sometimes they leave the windows open and the kid’ll show off his comic books or asks what rhymes with ‘beautiful’ (and it’s totally for homework shut up), and the old woman tells him about all the protests and marches she took part in, and asks him the name of that one cute pop star (it’s absolutely for her crossword now shush). And the old woman gives the kid relationship advice, and doesn’t tell when he tries a bit too much of his parents’ liquor cabinet one time, and the kid comes over and shows her how to use the smartphone her daughter bought for her, and doesn’t tell when she sneaks a cigarrette out of said daughter’s bag. And when the weather’s too bad to open the windows, they tape silly pictures or notes to the glass for the other to see (the kid makes sure to make his extra big so she doesn’t have to admit her eyeight isn’t what it used to be), and when it is nice the kid will sneak over and leave seashells on her windowsill, because the old woman said once she misses the sea, but she can’t travel like she used to. And one day he peeks in her window and sees her on the floor, and calls 911 and basically saves her life because she had a stroke and nobody would’ve known in time otherwise. And when she finally gets back from the hospital, just for a while because her daughter’s talking about a retirement home where she’ll have plenty of medical care and lots of friends her age, the kid comes through the window and then pulls another kid through the window who he introduces as his boyfriend, and says he wanted her to meet him. And she sniffs and interrogates the boyfriend in proper elderly relative fashion, and then declares him worthy of her boy— barely. And when she finally does have to go to that retirement home, the kid still comes to visit her, and always leaves seashells on the windowsill.
