Striped Hope, Pumpkin and Tiger
While doing our morning walk to check fences and pigs in the south field we discovered that some of the previously panned pathetic plateau pumpkin plants are producing plentiful fruit! In addition to the tons of turnips and beets there appear to be about a hundred pumpkin plants and many pumpkins. This is a surprise because this has been such a wet summer that up until recently we saw little no growth. There is hope for the garden if we get a nice long fall. No frosts so far…
Hope noted that the pumpkins were striped like her tiger and the tiger suit she had made for herself out of old pajamas. She’s also showing off her Muck boots. I need to write about them. We love ours after years of searching for a rugged all year mud boot.
