How Does My Garden Grow?


Garden 6

I lost count of the weeks, (especially since I have been on vacation and really let myself lose track of time).  But my garden has certainly grown!  Here are two pics…one from week one and one from yesterday!

CucumberAnd here is a pic of a cucumber growing…tomorrow I will post a cucumber poem for all you cucumber fans. Remember what I always say…healthy eating starts with a poem!

For more fun and healthy poetry check out my book Poems on Fruits & Odes to Veggies – Where Healthy Eating Starts With a Poem!


Mango Poem


Got off the beach yesterday and had a delicious fresh cut mango for post-beach snack…Healthy, fruity, sweet, juicy and just plain DELICIOUS!

How about a fun mango poem?



by Judith Natelli McLaughlin

To do the mango tango

Buy a mango, holler, hoot

Peel and slice the magic mango

Yellow-orange, juicy fruit

With the speed of a fandango

Eat the mango, move your feet

Step out forward, then jump backward

Keeping mango tango beat

Never let your taste buds hang – oh!

In the mango tango mood

Try this tropically nutritious

Simply mangolicious food
