“Grandma’s Garden”
The child slung the burlap bag in large circles. The bottom of the bag stained a nice healthy red. He made his way down the road and cut through a small clearing in the thickets of the trees. He followed the little path that lead him to the river. He set down the bag and took off his shoes. He took a stick and fishing line, cast it out into the water, and leaned back on the stump of a tree. He untied the hemp string from around the burlap bag and reached inside. He could feel the nice mushing of the contents inside. A little more of the red liquid dripped out. The boy blindly slid his fingers over each of the objects in the bag looking for the prefect one. He searched a little while longer and finally pulled out a nice plump, red tomato. He shoved his hand deep into his overall pocket and pulled out a tiny pocketknife. He carefully sliced the tomato in to thin slices. He laid each slice on the outside of the burlap bag. After the tomato was all cut up, he stuck his hand in the other pocket and pulled out a tiny little saltshaker. He salted each one of the slices of tomato. He grabbed his stick and line, picked up a slice of tomato and shoved it in his mouth. He chewed and slurped it up. Leaning back on the stump he crossed his legs and mumbled, “Grandma’s tomater plant sure is good.”
