In The Field Next Door
Another sure sign of autumn is melons growing wild in the field next door. They seemingly appear out of nowhere and run in all directions, not just here, but down along the railroad tracks, up along the bluffs above the Pacific and just about anywhere else they can get a toe hold.
They're a native California plant that thrives on neglect and will soon be gone as suddenly as they came.
