Walking Through The Garden

Journal Free Writing – Experience In The Garden
Beginning of July
Everything is so green
The garden is a sea of green
Green leaves are everywhere
The smell is definitely of tomato
Though none of the familiar red berries are near
Overgrown bushes overpower the garden fragrance
Bright yellow blossoms give promise of fruit to come
Cucumbers are growing long and firm
Hanging on the garden fence
Immature vegetables are thin and prickly
If plucked, they would be very bitter
Zucchini and yellow squash
Carrots and Peppers
All growing so well
Okra trees, six feet tall
Nothing in the garden is ready
Just the cucumbers
I have cucumbers up to my ears
I hate cucumbers!
