Harvest Time

This story was written in answer to the Ragtag Daily Prompt : Harvest

Harvest means: To gather crops or the process or period of gathering in crops.

Here’s what I came up with …

Firstly the word Harvest always reminds me of this …

The Wurzels – Combine Harvester.

Now for my Poem – The Harvest ….

It’s harvest time, in our old village

Time to remove the crops from the tillage

So, you jump up on the old combine

When the work’s done, we’ll toast some Brandywine

Barley, maize and wheat – hay for the cow

Sweetcorn, beans and peas, delicious fresh chow

The roots are next; carrots, potatoes and sugar beet

Cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and leeks to eat

Grapeseed oil, millet and honey – everything between

Don’t forget the crop of pumpkins for Halloween

When the harvest is reaped, we go to the pub for dinner

A cold beer and delicious fresh produce, always a winner

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more poems to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Poetry Corner.

Have a great day!
