Peas in a… tent.

The okra is done. The pumpkin leaves have wilted. Hopefully they have the roots to ripen their fruit. I need to uncover the lettuce and take the bucket hats of the peppers.

    I thought they are supposed to be in a pod. (See? I got the joke in the title.) But seriously,

    I saw a poem here along with the gardner’s report and the funny picture:

    AFTER THE FROST

    The okra is done.

    Hopefully they have the roots
    to ripen their fruit.

    I need to uncover the lettuce
    and take the bucket hats off
    of the peppers

    While the peas wait
    in their tent .

    P.S. I think the compact statements and word pictures together can tell a larger story because of the white space in between. Still, i wouldn’t change a thing in this post.

      The peas made it. The tomatoes left uncovered, did not. Their green globes left to shine through drying dark mush. The lettuce flattened, but springy, will return. Strawberries teasing a late winter treat.
