Pumpkin Kinder Moon

The sky has been overcast for several days now, but by the time the moon is full it should be clear. I feel privileged to see the moon drifting along, sailing with the clouds, and pause to look for it every night, even when all I can see is it's glow through veils of clouds. The last moon I saw rise above the trees was a slender crescent. May-be it is just my recollection, but it seems that the first part of September we always get a a few days of chilly, damp to the bone weather. Very bad for the tomatoes, and the pumpkins. there aren't the usual crop of huge orange globes this year but tiny "pumpkin kinder" who look very frail and small for their age. Am Internet acquaintance of mine posts often about the pumpkins she is growing from seed sent to her by a friend in the UK, so in honor of that I will call this moon the ' Pumpkin Kinder Moon".
