Sample text

If Milt suspected that he might be an agent of mischief, he went about that mischief with an entitled air, as though he were di­ vinely sanctioned, an orchard sprite, the troll under the bridge. He still scolded me as ruthlessly as ever, his mouth a blowtorch fueled h e i r loom • 29 by the gases in his stomach. The quacking never let up. “DUNNA VEDER! ” And I struck back. I got my BB gun and took it down to Milt’s barn and shot out every window that was not already broken. After that, I went into the implement shed and unscrewed the spark plugs from Milt’s riding mowers and threw them into the woods.

So I started snooping around the implement shed, scratching my head over the Ford 8N that had sat untouched since Milt had died almost fifteen years earlier. A state-of-the-art workhorse in Milt’s heyday, the Ford 8N is today the kind of tractor a gentleman farmer will buy for a couple thousand dollars at auction, good for cleaning manure out of horse stalls or mowing ten to fifteen acres or plowing snow in the driveway. I called up Daryl, an old schoolmate, to help me figure out how to get the Ford 8N started.

But I was only thinking of a large garden then, a garden like Mildred and Jimmy King’s. As it turned out, I barely came up with enough transplants to fill half of the ground he had plowed, and the whole parcel turned into a weedy, barely harvested mess by the end of the summer. Chaos had found yet another foothold at Eckerton. When I came back the next year—the year I started three thousand tomato seedlings in a Brooklyn brownstone—and told him I was going to try my hand at two acres, he shook his head and complained to the neighbor, whose de facto landlord treatment of us had gone uncontested for too many years.
