Sometimes zucchini would grow huge literally overnight. “Wow, grandma. Look at this.” I’d hold up a two-foot long zucchini. “It’s ginormous!”
I can’t even believe this life I had. It seemed like so much work back then. And it was. But now, it all seems charming. And now when I dream of my future, it includes a garden. Perhaps someday, I will be the one in a sundress, bent over with my ass end in the air, pulling out the weeds between the onions.
