Hobby 16: Pumpkin Pickin'

Continuing our weekly hobby updates, we bring you the very seasonal hobby, Pumpkin Picking! Pumpkin is a gourd-like squash of the genus Cucurbita and the family Cucurbitaceae (which also includes gourds).

We really wanted to carve a pumpkin, make pumpkin seeds, and bake pumpkin pie, so we went to the nearest pumpkin patch. Turns out making a pumpkin pie requires the outer part, so we couldn't carve it and make a pie at the same time. Even though our plans were ruined, we still had fun.

A snowpumpkin. Or possibly, a pumpkinman.

-Plenty of uses for pumpkin

-Most pumpkins have been stepped on

How to Pick Your Pumpkin

Step 1: Find pumpkin on ground. Check to see if it has been stepped on. Don't step on other pumpkins in the process.

Step 2: Pick up pumpkin.

Step 3 (Optional): Place pumpkin in wagon. Learn from our mistakes; make sure the wagon has all four wheels before you take it.

Step 4: Wash pumpkin in dirty water with filthy brush.

Some Things You Might Run Into

Baby pumpkins!

These green pumpkins may look exotic, but don't be fooled. They just aren't ripe yet.

Watch out for this strange green thing that may find its way into the pumpkin patch. It's not actually a pumpkin.

That should be it! I hope you've enjoyed this weeks hobby.
