As we sat photographing and chatting over our garden delights, my son said, "If the sun shines on me too long, I will die." What?! My immediate response, if only in my head, was, 'me too'. Instead I assured him that he will not die. Then we spun a dialogue on the healthy effects of the sun as we twirled our fingers in the soil. The sun helped our newly sprouted "Cinderella Pumpkins" to poke their leaves through the dirt (right on schedule for a Halloween harvest). The sun is also contributing to the heavy stems of our beefsteak tomato laden plant. Imminent bounty. My son will survive the sun. I will be grateful as they each persist in shining.
