The vegetable plot…

is the title of this poem (author unknown) –

Remember, remember in dreary September

The fate of the vegetable plot:

Where, all through the season,

For some puzzling reason,

Though weeds have grown, your seeds have not.

I’m not going to dwell on how dire it’s been, or how I fared on the plot.  Being ever the optimist I hope that 2013 will be a much better growing  year for all of us.

I’d like to thank everyone who reads this blog, and especially those who also comment.

Happy New Year!

    The best thing about gardening is that there’s always “another time”… Best Wishes for the year ahead!

    The UK’s wettest year since 1910! Now that’s saying something, isn’t it? Time for a trip somewhere warm and dry 🙂 The poem is on the mark, too.

    That poem could have been written by me, but I’m not that good with verse! I admire those who have success with seeds.
