RIP Little Pumpkin.....

August 27, Peabody MA: Little Pumpkin, age 3 months, died unexpectedly sometime between August 25 and 26. The cause of death is undetermined, but it is a possibility that Little Pumpkin suffered from BGS (Beginneris Gardeneritis Syndrome). Little Pumpkin was pre-deceased by his cousins Monster Zucchini and Little Butternut and his special friend, Weird Cucumber. He is survived by his close friends the Pepper siblings: Jalapeno, Banana, and Green and the Tomato family: Big Boy and his wife Roma, and their children Cherry and Brandywine, and many herbs and flowers. There will be no burial as Little Pumpkin expressed a wish that when his time came he be cremated and his seeds be scattered on fertile earth. In lieu of flowers, please send donations of good thoughts to the DeSimone Family Garden Trust for a Successful 2010 Pumpkin Harvest.

Yeah, I think the zucks and cukes and butternut have run their course. We did get lots of cukes and zuchs though before they kicked it. Now, pepper and tomatoes we have coming out the wazoo...still!!!
