Six Days Away from the Garden

One almost broccoli
Two fat slugs
Three tomatoes – eaten*
Four stalks of rhubarb
A fistful of chard
Six orange beets
A passel of peas
Eight yellow squash blossoms
Scads of purple flowers
A bushel of bean blooms
Eleven juicy strawberries
Twelve little basil leaves…

And fifteen enormous mole hills.
