The Vegetable Plot by Irene Strange, Founder Member

The Vegetable Plot

Brussel sprouts sprout on the stems

Cauliflowers flower as white gems

Cabbage green grow with rain,

Cabbage white purity to gain.

Curly kale swirl

As they curl and twirl.

Broccoli florets solid and tight

With graceful stems as they catch the light.

Green beans grow as they cling,

Pods swell sweetness to bring.

Lettuce, let us chew the cud.

Asparagus squeeze through the mud.

Marrow's stretch on the ground.

Melons rolling round and round.

With aching muscles and hearts lain bare

Providing food so healthy with tender care.

Gardeners work and dig the soil

As onwards they sweat and toil.

Thank you Irene for the lovely poem.
