In honor of the sheer weight of summer squash just picked from my garden, I have dug this up from April 🙂
the year our garden gave too much
we sold zucchini at the roadside
my father’s farmer friend
drove slowly by our stand, pretending to cry
as we stole his business
& we two (capitalists
disguised as girls)
stuck out our tongues
Heh, love love love squishes. I can recall vines past stretching out twenty feet or more. It became a daily source of comedy, the vines growing another foot.
yes, they are so prolific 🙂
I love zucchinis and it’s been quite a while since I set my eyes on any. You know, I’ve always loved the idea of back yard gardens even though I hate gardening.
🙂 They can be quite a chore to maintain–mine is my cheap therapy/stress reduction.
