In the Garden

Here are some scenes around Amherst.

My neighbor has a picnic table set up by their garden, so that when they eat outside on a hot summer night they can gaze upon the source, or future source, of their nightly serving of vegetables.



Among the things they are growing is eggplant. At least I think it's eggplant, a city-slicker like me can't be too sure.



Some of the little "cherry tomatoes" are already a bright red!



They are also growing corn, and have already harvested some ears.



This is also balloon season, as evidenced by the UMass weather balloon hovering over the Amherst Big Y Supermarket.



Here a rainbow balloon drifts over Rafter's bar.



In Amherst they drive funny cars, as evidenced by this oddly painted vehicle in the Big Y parking lot.



I wonder how such paint jobs affect the re-sale value? Or maybe you only paint cars like that when it is obvious you are the last owner before the junkyard.

Finally, I was walking past this Amherst church when I heard a joyous noise coming from within. Of course I had to check it out.

I don't think those are eggplant. Looks like plum tomatoes.
