Summer Gardens

Peas. Sweet and green. Shucking. Sweet and round and most too large to fit into a small boy's nose.

Remembering. Amanda's garden. Aidan eating almost as many peas as we could shuck. Sitting. Summer. Tiny girl. Garden. Peas and tomatoes and sunflowers. And other things too.

Remembering. My mother growing peas. Because she could. Green and sweet and round. Sitting in dirt and shucking and eating. Shucking and eating.

Noticing. My daughter. Sweet and green. Growing peas with her grandmother. From seed in early spring. Then to garden.

Plant. Watch. Grow.

Watch and grow. Shuck and eat. Sweet and green.
