A Little Garden and A Little Garden Poetry


Just take a look at what my darling husband made for me today!
We planted two kinds of tomatoes, two kinds of peppers, a little spicy basil and a little cilantro. I am so excited! Isn't it the cutest raised garden you ever did see?

Now it's time for a little poetry!

Little garden, small and frail;
may the sun be a friend by day;
the moon your guard by night;
and little raindrops come to play.

As you grow to be big and strong
and bear much fruit for me.
So juicy and sweet a wonderful treat;
a vision of bounty to see!

~Happy Gardening!~

Awesome! I'd love to try growing tomatoes and herbs...I may have to point this out to hubby ;)

How sweet is that! And I love your poem. I wish I had a nice spot for a "little" garden. My limited space for one has such hard clay that I would have to totally redo the soil... maybe next year if I am here in this particular place. Love you!

hope you're enjoying your weekend!

I so can not wait for gardening season. I am envious you can start already, your poem is adorable.

Woo Hoo! You won't be disappointed in your crop. Home grown tomatoes are the best ever. In fact I won't buy store tomatoes because they just don't compare.

I love this sweet place for your tomatoes. I'm so excited for gardening weather in Colorado. We are warm but still can have frost for 2 more weeks...

That's beautiful! (The raised garden bed and the poem!) You are both so talented.

Happy Monday, what's for dinner tonight?

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Oooh, does he do house calls? It's so cute! Monsoon and I planted some veggies and herbs today, but Sprinkles (the puppy) can read into the pot and I guess she likes to dig. :( A raised garden - again, it's just so cute!

Chef E said...

This is right up my poetry writing, and cooking alley...my home right now is too small for a garden, but I am not giving up!

Thanks for sharing...
