The state of the pumpkin

Although there are ears on the corn plants, the kernels are all underdeveloped. The lettuce has been out there so long that even what’s not flowering is slightly bitter (rather pretty, though). The pumpkin, though — this is my success for the year. Just feast your eyes on this:

Isn’t that looking lovely?

I’m also (just a bit) grateful that school starts two weeks from today.

What are you grateful for today?

    I never saw a polka-dot pumpkin before now. And, it has speckled leaves! How very unique.

    • The speckled leaves are powdery mildew. Hazard of the humidity. I don’t know whether the dots on the pumpkin are going to vanish as it ripens or not.
