cue the heat!

Summer, summer, come at last!

Sturdy bunching onions growing tall and fast.

Green tomatoes on the vine struggle to redden and

nourish our bodies that yearn for the fresh fruits and

vegetables of the season. Cucumber beetle, go away! and

leave my plants to grow. We do not want you here about,

withering the fruits and robbing us of the rewards of our labor.

Meager fare at the farmer's market has kept us wishing for

healthy blooms and vine ripened foods, and

the meager size of

this year's garden is no

cause for celebration.

Life is so much more

keenly felt when the living

is so close to the soil.
