... What You Sow

Another tough one to color, although I'm pleased with how delicious the melons look. The obvious keyword for this card would have been "Harvest," but I went with reaping as it evokes the old expression of Reaping What You Sow and allowed for a negative reading of the card, as demanded by that central bit of action: put too many melons in your wheelbarrow, and you risk spilling them as our Brownie friends have done. 

The barn is painted specifically to evoke the barn at my old home in the country: I always suspected there were little people mucking about there when no one was looking.
