pumpkin picks

My too-small garden does not allow space for growing pumpkins. To do so would mean giving up potatoes, strawberries or peppers. But I wish my little square of soil didn’t make me choose. I love the look of those orange orbs swelling beneath their leafy vines throughout the summer.

I also mulch to retain moisture against the winds. A few years ago, as one of the nastiest winter ice storms that the old-timers can remember hit our area, my heart sank as I saw some of my trees and shrubs almost flatten to the ground. As everything began to melt, the ones that were hit the hardest made a slow ascent almost back to their original stance. All of the watering, fertilizing, supplements and TLC paid off. LOU SHELDON BORGER, TEXAS I gather my fallen leaves and pass them through the shredder or mower. I put them in a garbage bag in layers, spraying…
