The lady giving us the farm tour said to search for just the right pumpkin for you. When you found it, you were to stand by it with your hand up and someone would come across the pumpkin patch and cut it off the vine for you.
Searching the Pumpkin Patch
More and more of the class picked their pumpkins, raised their hand, had their pumpkin’s stem cut, and headed out of the field. Still there was one little boy who had to keep looking.
Despite my questioning whether it was possible to have passed the ideal pumpkin, he keep looking and looking.
“Are you looking for a small pumpkin or a large one?” I asked. He simply shrugged his shoulders and kept looking.
What did the perfect pumpkin look like? It is orange with green spots on it. It is on the large size of small pumpkins and it is really heavy. It was too heavy for a now tired from searching little boy to carry any further than the hay wagon we had to taken to the field on.
