A bunch of  carrots on my plate,

Eaten cooked or raw,

Either way they taste just great,

And you’ll be back for more. 

Supermarkets all expound 

A certain shape and size,

But flavour isn’t ever found,

On the evidence of just your eyes.

These veggies that I’m eating

Are, every one, home-grown,

Ànd their taste ŵill take some beàting,

So go on! Grow your oŵn!
