An Abundance of Artichokes

..

It started with the radishes. Wily little blushing suckers;
plop-popping up everywhere, ready to be plucked from

the soil and ravenously ravished in spicy bites. We thought
briefly of carrots, but thought better. Bitter being better, per

-haps. Or maybe something more in fashion, a fusion of
blueberry and breeze. We all want something from this

hollow ground, some hated approximation of strange,
some range of loose-lipped lie and little garden tag

stating how better to take care of this lonely
one: more water, less sun.

 

..
Whew. Caught up with Quickly. This is for day 13

    Yes please!

    Then right after that beauty of a phrase, you get so deeply profound:
    “We all want something from this
    hollow ground, some hated approximation of strange,
    some range of loose-lipped lie and little garden tag”

    Catching up is hard to do. I think I’m only one prompt behind. I finally got to this one for Q in a multi-mash.

    Gardens take work. Gets my knickers in a twist when the rabbits and squirrels think they have the rights to everything. A raised garden might have to be ten feet high. But then one wouldn’t be using the depth of Mother Earth. Just perhaps some other dirt to dish around. 🙂
