Pumpkin Pickin'

One autumn I was in the metro DC area visiting my friend Sylvie. She and I went to the MD state renaissance festival and afterwards, we drove off the beaten path to see some rural areas and small burgs that dotted the countryside. It was a wonderful afternoon of siteseeing and stealing. You see, we found an outside floral/plant market that had some wonderful pumpkins for sale. We snooped around, picked out the perfect pumpkins but couldn't find anyone to talk to regarding a purchase. SO, we loaded up Sylvie's trunk and got in the car. After giggling like schoolgirls for a while, we decided the best thing to do was to leave some cash beneath a pumpkin and skip getting a receipt. To this day I still wonder who found the green under the orange. Hopefully it was the shop owner.
