I have someone Iâ€™d like you to meet.
Itâ€™s me. Myself. Good olâ€™ GreenBeet.
Did you know that I like to garden?
Not roses or pansies, Iâ€™ll beg your pardon!
I mean backyard farming with veggies and stuff
Not tulips and lilies and pansy girl fluff
I mean heirloom tomatoesâ€”yes, hornworms and all
Watermelon in summer and spinach in fall
If thereâ€™s a veggie to grow, Iâ€™ll plant it and pray
That the aphids donâ€™t kill it before it sees light of day
But Iâ€™m a serious gardenerâ€”I only eat what I grow
Well, I make exceptions for beerâ€”Iâ€™m no ninny, you know
Now, Iâ€™d like to recruit you. Come e-farm with me!
Weâ€™ll each tend our own gardens, then meet here for e-tea
Weâ€™ll chat up our findings, weâ€™ll compile our knowledge
Weâ€™ll earn garden degrees without going to college
Iâ€™ll tell you how to kill slugs, the bane of my life
Iâ€™ll help you tackleÂ the pains of gardening strife
Letâ€™s do it! Letâ€™s farm! Letâ€™s eat veggies all year!
And if you want answers, youâ€™ll find them right here.
Now invite all your friends to come out and play
With this rhyming backyard farmer. Iâ€™ll be here every *Thursday.
Have questions? Letâ€™s talk! Iâ€™m like the date to your gardenâ€™s prom
Youâ€™ll find me right here: greenbeet at sacrag dot com
*Well, Iâ€™ll be here once a week; the weekday will vary. But â€œweekâ€ didnâ€™t rhyme with â€œplay,â€ so I just went for it.
