An English In Kentucky

    I can almost hear the venerable bed discussing their future with Bean Sprouts.    "Doves are the least of your problems."  So it's as well the bean Sprout is an enthusiastic and undaunted expression.  

    Wax Gourd to the contrary already understand the alien nature of their recent incarnation.  One has already succumbed to depression.  He curled up, withered and died.

     Malabar Spinach, however, survived the cool and there they are, ready to climb into the hot and dry and wind and rain.  A wonderful green for the summer days.

    Then there is the business of us eating them.  Always astonished to know that in the course of year something like one and three quarter million camels are consumed.
