How Does Your Garden Grow: A Garden Lexicon — May 15, 2018, Flyway Journal
Notes From the Field Creative Nonfiction Contest, Honorable Mention
Under the canopy of sprawling, spiky leaves, I find the first summer cucumber of my garden. It is misshapen, bulbous on one end and angular on the other, but it looks for all intents and purposes like a cucumber. A garden is like a lottery ticket. For a small, up-front investment and a little bit of time, you either receive the prize of food, in the best scenario, or a deformed cucumber, in the worst.
