Well, our pumpkin harvest this year was not what it could have been. Many of the plants fell prey to powdery mildew and, honestly, a bit of inattention during the dry period in August and September. As a result, the pumpkins we picked were a little on the small side.
Never fear: The watermelons did okay.
So the evil spirits will be kept at bay as long as we can keep the cats at bay.
