Some vegetables I eat
Husk shell, eat seed or greens
Others, the other way
Eat their roots, trash the tops
Life is like that, I know
Values, pride is the guide
The seeds are important
Offspring their legacy
Some worry where'd they come
Of their roots they are proud
Balanced diet I try
Like my roots, love the seeds

Today I am linked with Margaret at the Real Toads,
Artistic Interpretations with Margaret "-- " Art with Toril
- From the link above: "Tori 'currently resides in LaFarge, Wisconsin, and manages a small farm, Second Cloud on the Left Farm, with her husband Drew and her parents. The farm specializes in growing all heirloom, endangered, and rare varieties of produce.'"
- Besides these 'tops and root veggies' I like Toril's "The Emperor's New Sweater" (18 x 18) and her "Old Friends" (20 x 20) the best. See these and more at Margaret's link.
Note: My 'roots' are European, Manx (Isle of Man), English, German. My 'seeds' are: five (5) kids (three sons, two daughters); six (6) grandchildren; and two (2) great-grandchildren with another (1) due in April.
