of pumpkins & persimmons
Some years ago (let's say 4) I put in a little seeding of these (Cinderella?) pumpkins. It yeilded a harvest of fourteen, big beautiful fruits. (We had more space then). I was hooked. As sculptural objects,I love the various quirky-colored and shaped gourds, more than the plain, bright orange. This first picture is from that first harvest. I've never grown a pumpkin since, though I've planted them. Too late in the season, I'm thinking. Not enough water.
So, here are a few from neighborhood gardens.
And persimmons ripening on a neighbor's tree.
