Haiku Moment: earth treasure


is it time? harvest?

soil erupts with sharp fragrance,

come, my garlic treat

This is our third successful (meaning: no earwig damage) allium crop! Maybe next year should be a season of rest for the garden beds when I grow just alliums and let the exploding earwig population die off a bit. The idea does bear tasty consideration…

I live with my husband and crazy kitty. Much of my time is spent writing, reading, and playing with the grands. You can usually find me sipping tea or coffee, nibbling on dark chocolate, and contemplating what to plant next in the garden. If not those pursuits, then I am probably trying to figure out how to cook and live in an RV, creating cards with rubber stamps, walking, hiking, or out snapping photos with my camera.

  1. Beautiful! I just picked 7 zucchini squash this morning. I bought kabocha squash seeds on Etsy that turned out to be zucchini. So disappointed. Now I have zucchini coming out my ears : )

    • Oh, rats! But zucchini is good too, though it’s hard to keep up with it. I have nothing yet for zucchini. The seeds kept getting eaten. Thanks for stopping in, Kim. 🙂

  2. Lovely haiku, Angie! I’m so glad the earwig didn’t taste them first.
