TOO MUCH!

Three inches short

Yellow flowers

budding.

 

Green, one foot tall

sizes all smalls

blooming.

 

Water, three feet tall

healthy orange

harvesting.

 

More, four feet tall

nothing, colorless

pinching.

 

Water, four feet tall

dwarfs, green

staking.

 

Four feet tall

nothing, yellows

flowering.

 

Nothing at all

still green

nothing.

 

Doing no more

zip, nada at all

disposing.

 

Wally world

fruitless, item

shopping!

 

Wonderful new mall

full of markets

buying.

 

Missed my call

cases of all

tasting.

    Oh that sucks.. all that work for nothing. Grew tomato plants in grow bags on my balcony once, they were play but, I couldn’t stand the stink of the plants themselves. Never again either…lol

    I’m assuming the tomato crop was a bust. But, they just don’t taste as good from the market!

    Ha! My children have a garden that has been super productive this year, but definitely know the feeling here. Very clever. k.

    I really enjoyed that. I’m not sure what form that is, but I like the structure.
