Plant a bunch of pumpkin seeds (200-500 is ideal), which you can purchase in Forgotten Lands. Wait four hours for them to grow, then harvest them using one of your gardening companions to ensure you get extra pumpkins as you're picking. Before you head off to cook them into Grilled Veggie Platters, go ahead and replant more seeds so that they can get started growing while you're cooking and doing other errands.

While it's true that any three vegetables combined meet the recipe needs for a Grilled Veggie Platter, pumpkins have the highest selling price of all vegetables at 664 coins each, so they will also drastically increase the selling price of a platter (and other dishes, too). Let's do some math.

  • The selling price of 3 pumpkins: 1,992 coins
  • The selling price of a Grilled Veggie Platter made using those 3 pumpkins: 2,782 coins

As you can see, selling massive stacks of pumpkins by themselves bring in quite a haul, but you can obviously make almost 30% more money by cooking them into Grilled Veggie Platters before selling them. Whether you want to take that extra time out of your day for the increased selling price is entirely up to you, of course. Either way, pumpkins are clearly a great choice to help you with your Dreamlight Valley retirement plans.
