There once was a goddess called Gaia,
Whose people all thought they were higher;
With coal and with oil
They managed to spoil
Her planet, though peril was dire.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind

I've never met Andy or Dave, but I'm sure that there will have been one or two instances that this is true, and the other way round as well (but that wouldn't rhyme) :lol:

There was a young man called Andy
With bucket and spade he was handy
But mud castles not!
For he tended his plot
While his brother stayed home feeling randy.

Eeek! Sorry. I just realised that my last one was very much like kit-e-kate's which was posted earlier. :oops: I read kit-e-kate's limerick earlier on, and I guess bits of it stuck in my head. :oops: :lol:

With spade and fork and scythe and hoe
Self-sufficiently we go
To many a little 'lotment plot
To care for all the crops we've got
And there we weed and reap and mow and plant and dig and pick and sow.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind.

To eat what you've grown is just fine;
There is no better way you can dine.
I think it's just great
To fill your own plate,
But best is to drink your own wine!

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind.

Can't grow coffee, can't grow tea,
Can't do sugar, not for free -
But what counts is what I can
'cause I am a can-do man
And things I can do maketh me.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind

Hi! Great minds think alike, you know! :hugish:

Hey, maybe we should team up! We could have a whole Norse Saga of a limerick going on..... We obviously have the same sense of humour! :lol:

The Self-sufficientish site
Is friendly and helpful and bright
Pigs, chickens and veg
Lazy beds, hawthorn hedge
And growing your seedlings in ***** (compost!) :oops:
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less travelled by
And that has made all the difference.

The bankers have all robbed us blind
And the government, so much hot wind
I'm growing my own
Not going to town
For the supermarkets' pockets to line

Growing my own veg is a thrill
Watching them sprout on my sill
I put them in pots
And all round the plot
Then pick them and eat to my fill

Coming on Ish is a blast
Tips, news and chats download fast
I've made some good friends
Learned to make do and mend
Got a lifestyle I know that can last

T'was a man who planted veg n' fruit,
He stuck a parsnip into a hob nail boot,
He tried to find a wife,
To complete his goodlife,
But scared them all with his knobbly root!

There once was a woman who cried
"My veg has keeled over and died!"
Take heart, said her spouse
We still have this mouse
It killed all your veg. Now it's fried!"

But my personal favourite (and sadly I can't claim it as an original) is

There was an old man of Tralee
Who was viciously stung by a wasp
When asked, "Does it hurt?"
He replied, "Not a bit!
It can do it again if it likes"

Weird - I had my daughter in kinks over the Scots version -

There was a young man from Dundee
Who got stung on the neck by a wasp
When asked if it hurt
He said 'no, not at all'
It can do it again if it likes!
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less travelled by
And that has made all the difference.
