落花生

2006-07-02 14:54

  我们家的后院有半亩空地。母亲说:“让它荒着怪可惜的,你们那么爱吃花生,就开辟出来种花生吧。”我们姐弟几个都很高兴,买种,翻地,播种,浇水,经过几个月,居然收获了。

  母亲说:“今晚我们过一个收获节,请你们父亲也来尝尝我们的新花生,好不好?”我们都说好。那晚天色不太好,可是父亲也来了,实在很难得。

  父亲说:“谁能把花生的好处说出来?”姐姐说:“花生的味美。”哥哥说:“花生可以榨油。”我说:“花生价钱便宜,谁都可以买来吃。”

  父亲说:“花生的好处很多,有一样最可贵:它的果实埋在地里,不像桃子、石榴、苹果那样,把鲜红嫩绿的果实高高地挂在枝头上,使人一见就生爱慕之心。你们看它矮矮地长在地上,等到成熟了,也不能立刻分辨出来有没有果实,必须挖出来才知道。”我们都说是,母亲也点点头。

  There was half a mu of open ground in our backyard and Mother said, "It is a waste to leave it uncultivated. Since you are so fond of peanuts, why not open it up to plant some?" Pleased by the idea, we set about buying the seeds, plowing the field, sowing the seeds and watering it. Several months' hard work brought us the first harvest.

  "Let's have a harvest home and invite your father here tonight," Mother suggested. We all shouted agreement. The weather was bad that night, but still Father came which was rare.

  "Who can tell us the good of peanuts?" Father demanded. "They taste nice," my sister replied. "Oil can be extracted out of peanuts," my brother answered. I added, "Peanuts are cheap and everybody can afford them."

  Father elaborated, "Of the many advantages of peanuts, one is most valuable. Unlike pear, pomegranates and apples whose fruits are seductively high on the branches, peanuts keep close to the ground and you cannot tell whether they have borne fruit or not until they are dug out when ripe." We all agreed and Mother also nodded her approval.
