and the Law(n) won!
I’ve thrown in the towel!
I’ve cajoled my last!
It’s hot and the grass doesn’t seem to mind but the tomatoes do
The zucchini doesn’t want to produce
The corn is stunted
The cucumbers have resigned
Banana peppers are done
Cabbage surrendered before it started
And I don’t think the broccoli would come out even for a cheese bath!
The final straw came this morning
I went outside at dawn because that is the only time of day that it isn’t sweltering
Cold drink in hand
I walk to my lil plot of heaven on earth
Take a step in towards the squash vines and
Some kind of insect stung my foot!
They have taken up residency under my squash vines
I don’t know how many there are but it seems like millions!
Have at it crabcrass
Enjoy your sheltered home you lil stinging creatures
Come forth rabbit and deer!
The buffet is waiting
I’ll leave a salt block out there for your dining pleasure
