When I water the young
      tomato plants
           in the greenhouse,
the aroma of them
      earthy
      green
      richly wet
   fills the close humid space.

Last summer I reached through
   thick musky leaves
       to grasp a sunshine sweet orb
  and took a bursting bite.

  1. The smell of tomato plants is one of my favorite smells. I intentionally brush their leaves all the time so that I can drink in that wonderful aroma.Now I'm going to go upstairs to my seed starting room and smell my little tomato seedlings!
