Locally Grown Dots - May 2022

I Didn't Want Polka Dots

I didn’t want polka dots
I tried to send them back
Returned to sender with a note

Carrots, Parsnips, Radishes
Were what I was expecting
For years I didn’t understand
And struggled with rejecting

But into the dirt I went
Digging, Working, Weeding
And then started to recognize
The fruit I grew was needed

Polka dots grow on my trees
Not apples plums or pears
A quite special blend of never-before-seen
I LOVE what’s growing here
