Heirloom Gardening

Weekend Mini Challenge: People and Places
Welcome to the Weekend Mini Challenge with Kim from writinginnorthnorfolk.com!


Heirloom Gardening

she spent the summer bent over
planting
weeding
harvesting
and I watched from my kitchen window

an old woman with a cane she used to search for
beans
cucumbers
strawberries
and I was the beneficiary of her labor

now I am the old woman in a garden
sowing seeds
saved
by her
and I harvest a bit of her with each picking
