A quick lunch of tuna, hard-boiled egg with a dab of mayonnaise, and avocado with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon to dress it up. Then we are off to weed our garden plots before the rain comes tomorrow. We are already dreaming of sliced fat beefsteak tomatoes and fried zucchini blossoms, but there is a world to do before we tie the napkins around our necks. Don’t quite know why but it brings to mind a verse of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s beautiful poem, Portrait by a Neighbor

She digs in her garden

With a shovel and a spoon,

She weeds her lazy lettuce

By the light of the moon.
