A Gardening Victory

I couldn’t have guessed

Midnight Harvest

I could feel the frost coming on tonight, so I picked the last of the nearly-ripes by moonlight. My effort may be futile; they say only a vine can ripen this properly. And I’ve had far more than my fair share. It just seems such a waste to throw it away without trying. We’ll see how it goes.

“Well, it’s not the future yet, cause this zipper is stuck.”
