Mistress Mary, Quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With Silver Bells, And Cockle Shells,
And so my garden grows.
Fresh snap peas that melt like sugar in your mouth after your crunch through them, yellow crookneck squash, fresh, spicy mesclun mix, collard greens that I braise in bacon grease, giant muskmelons that sprout hairy orbs that may someday turn into dessert.
Chocolate mint just perfect with ice and rum, lemon verbena for grilled fish, homemade lavender simple syrup, purple sage for the NY Strip steak rub, beet greens for salads and the beets themselves, gorgeous little dirt gems in three colors. Red hot chilis to sprinkle on eggs. And Senor Jalapeno keeps on comin’ on.
Behold. Growing food is a beautiful thing.Bethany, Bethany, queen of the Saturday, How does your garden grow? With help from mom and lots of care, And learning as we go,* That’s how my garden grows. *[With goldendoodle supervision]
