Join in people - thanks to LanceB we can start and see how far we get with our verse game for garden produce.
Ogden Nash (his family gave their name to Nashville) was born on my birthday lucky man - or was it that I was born on his? Anyway he was born 19 August 1902 and died May 1971. He wote many books of poetry and is well known for his brief nonsensical and easy rhyming poetry as well as other writing.
Remember in another post I mentioned his 'parsely is gharsley' well, that was a typical Ogden Nash and here is another to do with food that he wrote ...
Develops the jaw,
But celery, stewed,
Is more quietly chewed.
Now on another post LanceB came up with one about mint so let's see what you can write. Try to emulate Ogden in any way you can, but use a subject that pertains to container gardening and off you go!
Here is my first effort -
Strawberries and cream
Make tennis a dream.
But hitting the net
means a cup you'll not get!
