192/366 - Mystic's Theme: Farms And More

2012.07.11
pixel
During lunch, I looked at my desk at work and saw a little farm. I felt grateful indeed. For the food on my little farm. For the farmers everywhere who help me keep it tilled. And for friends who send me new seeds to grow.

Lesson Learned: A world without farms is like water without fish - empty.

Thankful

My desk is a farm -
Much under an acre.
Only square feet...yet -
Spanning the world.

Oranges and peaches...
Coffee beans and sugar.
Don't forget the turkey -
The cows and the wheat.

The spinach - the onions...
Pepper and spices.
Oh yes - there's corn -
And other hidden things.

Today a new crop -
Fresh from the islands.
Sweet, sweet pineapples...
A yummy added treat.

HoosierAtHeART I wish more people appreciated the farmer, I don't know anyone who worked harder than farmers like my Dad and Grandpa. Things though do not look good this year because of lack of rain.

Eiram Dan, don´t tell me you drink diet soda?! Do you know how terrible is that stuff? From now on - herbal or fruit tea, please!

ArtBee "Farmers Feed Cities", that is what is written on every farm vehicle licence plate and is in every grocery store window around Southern Ontario....

Isn't it wonderful that we get to share our bounty with each other...

We don't grow pineapples or bananas here yet, nor do we grow oranges or lemons and limes, but we do have the most delicious everything else!

Bon Appetit! and Thank you!
