what is uncovered

The laying hen pens recently rolled through a patch of poison ivy. Neither of us got it, we are both much better about wearing clothes that cover up and avoiding the individual plants on the field. 

Seeing the poison ivy while collecting the eggs forced me to slow down, work around it gently to not disturb it. 

The hens don't get poison ivy. Don't seem to mind it a bit, scratching up the ground and plants. 

And then the pens rolled over this, uncovered by the birds. We saw the plant but not this pumpkin until they unearthed it...a curious thing to see, a pumpkin plant growing all by itself in the middle of the field. We didn't plant it. Wonder what did!
