I Caught These Two Canoodling In The Veg Patch.

Yes, love does seem to be blossoming in the garden.
These two seemed very close!!
(That will teach me to be a bit more thorough with my thinning out)

But, all was not what it seemed…..I heard rumours they’d split up!!


What a shame.

But,don’t worry……………
Like all good love stories, there’s a happy ending………they’re back together!!
Hooray!


I can hardly bring myself to eat them!
Happy Gardening
Paul

Hi there

I have grown some lovely carrots in the last two years but this year I was disappointed to have very twisted and stunted carrots. Anyone any idea why this could be?

3 Sep, 2015

 

I've always wondered what "Canoodling" meant. Not anymore! Thanks Paul :)

3 Sep, 2015

 

Never too old to learn :o)

3 Sep, 2015

 

That's true, but I'm not even old! not yet anyway, lol!

3 Sep, 2015

 

You're kidding us Bathgate.....I bet you've canoodled.
I don't like coriander, Bloomer so they are safe!!
Hi, LadyCarol. Sometimes, over fertilised(too rich) soil can be to blame but, very often, a distorted or forked carrot can be caused by stones in the way as the root tries to grow.but, these two were just too close together and I didn't thin out properly!
Good luck Lincs!
I'm glad you all had a laugh....
Paul (Bathgate) can go and practise his canoodling now!!!

3 Sep, 2015

 

OK OK I've Canoodled; but I didn't know I was doing it at the time. Now I do!

3 Sep, 2015

 

They are sweet.....to eat.

3 Sep, 2015

 

Ha ha......honesty's the best policy, you see Bathgate!!!! Now, we all know!!!
Yes, we had some of the others today Linda...lovely taste but haven't the heart to eat these two yet!

3 Sep, 2015

 

Now what I want to know is, Paul if you didn't know you were canoodling, how do you know how to do it and also whether you enjoyed it, best have another go, lol..

3 Sep, 2015

 

Ha ha....they're on your case Paul!!

3 Sep, 2015

 

I think it's just a matter of semantics; when you canoodle, I caboodle!

With all the canoodling going on, I'm surprised there's so much time left for gardening! πŸ˜„

6 Sep, 2015

 

No canoodling for me Melchi.....I leave that to the carrots.Im too busy being a pirate (and gardening) at the moment, for all that!

6 Sep, 2015

 

Hmmm....Now which would I rather be? A human breaking it's back working in the garden, or a vegetable practicing Kama Sutra 24/7?

6 Sep, 2015

 

Ha ha......I hadn't thought of it like that!

6 Sep, 2015

 

From now on, when you plant carrots, no closer than 6 inches apart. I have ways of knowing. No canoodling in the veggie patch! It's just not right.

7 Sep, 2015

 

That's easier said then done Bathgate....have you seen how small carrot seeds are...ha ha......I never thin out thoroughly enough! But, this way, they'll at least keep each other warm!

7 Sep, 2015

 

And don't spike the fertilizer with Viagra.

7 Sep, 2015

7 Sep, 2015

Two carrots caught together
canoodling in the ground,
These sweetest little carrots
did not want to be found.
Paul the Pirate digging
for treasure in his plot,
found much more than he bargained for,
two carrots all besot!
The treasure is still out there,
I hope you find doubloons,
the carrots, still together,
in love entangled swoons.

Linda.

Bravo, Lindak!

Love it LindakπŸ‘

Dickenson's "Wild Nights" is sedate in comparison!

15 Sep, 2015

 

Thanks Both....I get inspired now and again but do write poetry and short children's stories for charity. It's nice just to share. I hope Paul finds some hidden treasure...oooo arghhhh captain.

16 Sep, 2015

 

Excellent Linda .....ha ha! I still haven't found any treasure!

18 Sep, 2015

 

When we lived down the road in the old lodge I used to dig up bits of old pottery, blue glass from medicine bottles and bits of clay pipe Paul. In those days they didn't have dustbins so I suppose any rubbish got burned or buried.

The subject of buried treasure reminds me of something long ago. When I was a youngster my family would go to the beach in the summer. Their favorite place was rumored to be....seriously......where Captain Kidd had buried some of his treasure. As soon as we got there us kids jumped out of the car with our little sand shovels and proceeded to heavily pock mark the beach and sand dunes (a very bad thing to do) looking for that treasure chest. One time going down we thought we hit the top of a large wooden chest which turned out to only be a wooden palate which had washed up on the shore and was covered over by sand. To this day there are probably still, children looking for Captain Kidd's treasure. When on the dunes we were chased off of them frequently by a lady who had a beach bungalow there. That lady as we later learned was Nobel Prize winning author Pearl S. Buck.

Ha ha....excellent story.
I haven't found any treasure yet, either..(only the carrots )

20 Sep, 2015

 

Hi Paul I have included two photos of some of the things I've dug up in our different gardens when we lived there if you want to have a look.

25 Sep, 2015

 

They're a lot more interesting than my finds Linda!
