I dreamt it was there. I dreamt that there were vegetables growing at our old house in Kiowa. I woke up thinking that was preposterous because our weather hasn’t allowed anyone to have vegetables yet! We decided to go have a look anyway yesterday while driving though. The house wears a large foreclosure notice on it. The landlords wanted us to buy the place or move so they could but that must not have worked out and so the old farm in town on two-thirds of an acre sits with three foot high grass and hidden treasures. I figured the bank wouldn’t mind. Being raised by a dad who was captain of the sheriff’s department makes one slightly paranoid about breaking the law. But I planted this stuff, for crying out loud!
At the end we left with four huge buckets of onions, beets, carrots, celery, garlic and herbs. There were potatoes and many more things growing should someone move in before fall. What a bounty and a surprise!
I should listen to my dreams more often!
