– Watermelon hill

At the urging of Grace, I planted one watermelon seedling, in a little hill I made in a leftover patch among the sunflowers. It looked so attractive, a bit of green surrounded by black dirt, and it occurred suddenly to me how attractive the squirrels would find the bare dirt. So, after some thought, I sprinkled on them some cayenne pepper, which looks, in these photographs by Eli, like fairy dust.
