LONG-TERM FRUIT


LONG-TERM FRUIT

This sounds like religious how-to,

A “way-to-improve what-to-do”…

But it isn’t at all

We planted in Fall

Of last year and fruit came through.

My wife bought upside-down tomatoes

And I dragged my feet at my ‘fate-ose’…

By August last year

No fruit did appear,

It came inside at summer’s close.

Over-wintered on our window sill,

Its branching long vines overspilled…

Set out in the Spring

It died off (poor thing)

Grew new shoots and gave us a thrill.

Exactly three tomatoes late

And of three only one we ate…

Cherry tomato(es)

How quickly it goes,

A half-tomato-each rebate!
