Light-bulbPumpkin Carving Missions and building Guide

by Barbara D'Angelo - Oct 19, 2012 Star_s3,836 views

Here it is almost Halloween and time to become Pumpkin Carvers. Granny is sharpening her best knives and will teach us how to carve pumpkins. The mission is a series of 5 missions and a 4 step build. This is another of the Team up challenges, where you need a neighbor to help you plump the biggest pumpkins. There are 5 Different pumpkins each with different designs, The Traditional, Faces, Animals, Cute and Spooky. Spooky pumpkins are HS in the market but you will get one as a reward for carving the other pumpkins. The best part is that you will only need to tend these pumpkins 15 times instead of the usual 32 or 34 times which should make it a little easier. Along with this mission comes a new free gift crop the Mini Pumpkins, and a new tree, the Spider Tree and a premium animal, the Pumpkin mouse. The Ghost pumpkin of last years Halloween missions is back for this year.

Pumpkins need pumpkin Plumper, each pumpkin will use 15 pumpkin plumpers that are crafted using 2 clear water each, Begged for, and 3 super soil,dropps from Mini Pumpkins or rarely from Cabbage. Pumpkins need to weigh at least 99 lbs to be lit.

It is getting really hard to get the mini pumpkins now. I did save up and got 1 pumpkin to 99 lbs, trying to get my second. Wish there were another way to get the mini pumpkins


wait until u have all 15 plumpers before u start on the pumpkin dont do a few then wait to get more then start again go from start to finish in one action


can't seem to ever get any to over 99lbs. Any idea why not?
