My virtual friend, blogger/gardener/photographer Everett (Toonmoose Garden Blog), recently named the plants on his growing list: Fish Peppers, Bloomsdale Spinach, Red Cored Chantenay Carrots, Detroit Dark Red Beets, Nero Di Toscana Kale, Triumphe de Farcy Bush Beans. To his list, so musical it sounds like a symphony, I add my afternoon snack -- Honey Crisp. The apple sweats sweetness and snaps in the teeth like a soft snare drum. the rhythm beneath his seeds.
Oh, the joy of names.
