像蛇一樣的瓜,多麼令人好奇,當初鄰居栽種時,真的讓人印象非常深刻。

清晨,它從瓜架摘下時,瓜蒂部份還滲著水份,可見得蛇瓜水分含量也像其它瓜類一樣非常多。蛇瓜原產地是印度,後來慢慢被人引進,但台灣一般的傳統市場還是難得見到蛇瓜的身影,主要也是個人栽種為主。

我和另一半慢慢散步在山裡,欣賞著鄰居庭院裡的花草樹木,也討論著心得,例如楊梅樹和茄苳樹要定期修剪才會長的漂亮,而芭樂一定要套袋和疏果才能成長。我對種菜不在行,總是有一搭沒一搭的,認真的時候,每天除草除蟲,不認真的時候,我對蟲兒大軍就舉雙手投降,就放任它去。
山裡生活,我們不太去探究鄰居從前是作什麼工作的?可能有的是電子公司老板、大學教授、銀行員。。脫去從前的包袱,捲起衣袖,背起割草機都是一樣的。
山居生活,熱鬧的時候少,安靜的時候多,不時感觸,對人真心讚美無需計算,換來的是滿桌的珍餚。(台灣新竹新埔)
