A Poem for Salad

On Wednesday morning I was delighted to find I've been gifted my first ever poem.

Even better it's a) about one of my blogging obsessions - growing salad leaves, and b) April is National Poetry Month.

I tend to gnash my teeth a bit when the online marketing 'experts' go on about the Return on Investment (ROI) for social media. For me, this kind of random connection and a gift from a stranger is all the ROI I need.

I must admit I was a bit suspicious at first and responded with my own brand of Bad Poetry.

A delightful conversation ensued...

As a final thank you, here's the link to Mary Elizabeth's meinrhyme website :)


  1. Loved the article, I'm a big fan of all of the wonderful different salad leaves you can grow as well. Lots of mustards and sorrel here, as well as rocket and lettuce.

  2. I love sorrel CJ - mine's overwintered successfully, so that's one less thing to get sowing :)
