Farewell, My Cucumber

Farewell, my little tiny cute cucumbers! I’m sorry I’m not able to move you inside or to Hsin-li’s house along with the rest of the herbs. You’re on your own now for two weeks while I explore the Plateau of Tibet. I hope it rains a lot in Tokyo. But if it doesn’t, I hope the 2L bottle of water I stuck in the pot will provide some relief.

Look at how much you’ve grown in the three weeks that I’ve had you. I hope you survive this. Think of it as a test of endurance. I’m sure you’ll come out a better cucumber plant.
