288–Garden Puzzles

the garden puzzles me here
no easy figure out the seeds
plant indoors those that take
too long eliminate the ones
that won’t grow here no now
it’s frost free almost all year
and the sun burnt to hell
all the summer joy so now
after the gopher ate most
of what was left i’m here
trying to make myself plant
a winter crop when i’m used
to sitting back and eating
the things i grew in the summer
it seems i’m never satisfied
abundance never wears
the same clothes twice
i’m adjusting
