The cucumber had died, suddenly.
In the heat.
Mikio had tied it up with
strips from an old torn sheet.
To keep it off the ground
so it would’nt mold.
He got one good cucumber off
And two tomatoes, ripe just right.
Look at that yellow with the green
of the cuke.
The collard greens were flowering,
tasty, added them too.
To season, basil flowers
and the olive oil infused with garlic
left over from the grill.
