First frost

I planted it in May,

putting seeds into the ground.

Weeded, watered, fertilized

the produce did abound.

Onions by the bushel,

cabbage by the ton.

Purple cauliflower, blue potatoes,

oh, what fun!

I picked, I froze, I pickled,

pints and quarts and more.

The freezer’s full up to the top –

we can’t shut the cellar door.

This winter we can sit back

and enjoy the fruits of my labor.

Spread the wealth around

to our family, friends and neighbors.

My garden is a lot of work

and without it I’d be lost.

But honestly this time of year –

I can’t wait for that first frost.
