"I live in Southern California, and we'd been in a drought. But in January and February, it rained a ton, and then this pumpkin plant suddenly sprouted like crazy!" said Gleber. "I can't grow anything, but of course when Meya plants something, it grows like crazy. She gave it some good fertilizer, I guess!"
Meya, clearly, is pleased with her work.
"She's so short and stubby, it's a like a jungle to her. It is nice to have some green back there," Gleber said. "It's even flowering now, so we'll probably be having pumpkin pie in a couple months."
In other words, Meya's long scheme to get a second helping appears to be paying off.
