Big Dave's
Pumpkin Plant
Renowned for his black thumb, fatal so many species of flora, Big Dave decided to try a pumpkin plant this year (1997). Five seeds were planted; three sprouted. Then, following the sage advice a once colorfully famous and recently deceased PBS garden person, Thalassa Cruso, two sprouts were murdered for being too wimpy (the little ingrates!).
