Do you think you can
grow your own food?
(Get your hands dirty and forget about the mani!)
All you need is a generous-size container,
good potting soil, and a suitable spot ―
a patio, deck, or corner that gets a lot of sun.
Since soil in pots warms up more quickly in
spring than it does in the ground, you can get lots
of herbs, tomatos or peppers off to a faster start.
Just plant your seeds or seedlings, feed your loves
with organic fertilizer, (sing to them), water,
harvest, enjoy your bounty!!
(You had a little farmer in you after all! )
