Precipice of Bounty

Just like last August, my vegetables are on the tip of really producing a lot of yield. And, just like last August, I am leaving for a business trip – thankfully only for a week this time instead of a whole month. That means I will be able to take part in the harvest this year. I am happy about that.

Right now I have both a baby pumpkin and a baby watermelon! The pumpkins were a surprise from where I had left last year’s farm-bought Halloween pumpkin. The gourd rotted and the seeds just took hold in the soil next to my compost bin. They spread out across the walk way and are now trying to crawl up some shrubs along the property boundary.
