This lizard was committed to the playing dead thing. I was like, “I know you’re not dead. Run and do something.” But it stayed frozen.
Big tragedy – the pumpkins all started getting squishy and moldy within days of bringing them into the house.
I’m not sure what went wrong. I didn’t do anything different from normal.
Maybe a spore from the garden? Maybe different weather pattern that I didn’t read right?
When I discovered the problem, I had just come home from work and was so tired I could hardly see straight. I threw them in the fridge and processed everything this weekend. I saved enough pumpkin for pies and chili.
The butternut squash are still looking good so we’ll have some soup or something fun with those.
