my introduction to ground cherries

In a parking lot on a card table before a rusty pickup truck.

Nestled beside zucchini logs and onion bundles.

Spilling from a flimsy wooden box.

Pocket-size paper lanterns?

Husks grass to blush.

Petite globe fruit packages.

Green apple, roasted pineapple flesh.

New ritual for the summer pre-meal ceremonies.

Shucking corn, snapping beans, unwrapping ground cherries.

    • I don’t think you are supposed to eat them when they are green, but I thought they were so pretty that way, too. I enjoy food prep. verbs :)

    • thanks for visiting my blog! You will have to tell me about your past experiences… I didn’t even know what they were for 30 years :)
