Apples with your flesh so firm,
Asparagus that’s grown full term.
Beans of green and yellow bright,
Beets when pickled bring such delight!
Brussels Sprouts to boil hot,
Broad Beans also in a pot.
Broccoli, you are the best!
Cabbage to roll at my behest!
Carrots, orange and full of power,
I like you cooked with Cauliflower!
Celery, so straight and high,
Cherries(sour) in a pie!
Cucumbers, green and crunchy, oh!
Currants make my heart aglow!
Eggplant, namesake, what should I think?
Garlic, I love you, but you stink.
Globe Artichoke, sectionable feast!
Gooseberries, grown facing East!

Grapes when fermented are just right.

Kohlrabi, a German Turnip trend!
Leeks of green with whitish tips,
Lettuce, cold upon my lips!

Okra from the family marrow!
Onions sweet or sharp and hot,
Parsley adds flavor where there is not.
