The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Allotment-itis!

Marvellous!

Sunburnt slightly,
well weeded,
peas planted at plot,
ten tomatoes too,
courgettes comfortable,
bulbs bedded in,
chickens chowed down,
lavender launched,
twigs tweaked!

Meanwhile

blossom blooming,
strawberries starting,
asparagus aspiring,
currants cajoled,
beans booming,
blueberries burgeoning,
rhubarb rustling,
raspberries rising,
parsnips plumping,
mint meandering….

Back …. Breaking!

    A feast of alliteration to be followed by a feast of veg I hope.

      Fingers crossed. I wanted to make the list of achievements at the plot a bit different.

    Top drawer poetry! I like this a lot. The rhythm rolls brilliantly!

    I hope Allotment-itis is catching as I could do with doing some of these jobs! It sounds like you have all things well under control in your neck of the woods. Hurrah.

    Here’s to an exciting earth day on Monday. One of your super posts alerted me to this event! Happy Easter!

      Thanks very much. I wanted a different type of ‘jobs list’. Again I want to write so I’m blogging and I should be exploring words and language. It’s a lovely sunny day and we’re about to move a bee colony!

        Can’t wait to hear more and take a peak at the bee colony in later posts. You are so imaginative in suggesting new ways to engage with nature. Good luck with the bees!
