The Tomato

In April and through most of May, I watched the ground and wondered if it would ever dry.

When it finally did, I tilled it and dug holes.

I bought tomato plants and transplanted them.

In June, I weeded around the plants, staked them, weeded some more, and waited.

In July, I plucked tomato worms from the plants and weeded.

This week, I plucked a red fruit from the plant.

I toasted bread, spread a little mayonaise over it, and sliced a tomato.

Eating the sandwich, with a tomato still warm from the sun, I deemed the tomato worth the effort.
