All Things Orange
Here's my favorite carrot top holding carrots (with tops) fresh from our garden. Today was a major harvest day. Besides the carrots, we collected green beans, our first Roma tomato, zucchini and yellow squash, corn, and pumpkins. Something rather large with an appetite for cantelope has also been enjoying our garden. By large, I mean bigger than a bug, maybe a squirrel or ground hog. I don't think deer can get over the fence, and I can't imagine what else could take big bites out of a melon. The pumpkins are gorgeous as you see in the photo, so round and unblemished. I know they'll make great jack o'lanterns and we're hoping for good pie.
Speaking of orange things, here's Cinder begging for pizza. He's hard to photograph because he's the same color as the kitchen floor. When he's sitting up, he catches food in his mouth, and toys with his paws.
