This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

vegetable palindromes

On a palindromic date (01-02-2010), here are some garden (and other) palindromes:

No Garden, One Dragon
Potato idiot atop
Step on no pets.
Vegetable was I ere I saw Elba, Tegev.
Yo basil is a boy.
No lemon, no melon.
May a moody baby doom a yam?
Lisa Bonet ate no basil.
Flo, gin is a sin. I golf.
Dee saw a seed.

Oh, Kathy. Hysterical! I can't wait to work "Yo basil is a boy" into conversation (and I will, too). Happy New Year!

Joseph sent me the same comment about the date--only he did not call it a palindrome. Curious! I will write him to inform him of the palindrome definition. 01-02-2010--Great date!!!

TSannie, Please borrow. No need to attribute. I got these here: http://www.fedtrek.com/Palindromes.html, but they seem to be all over the web if you google them.

A man, a plan, a canal, Panama! I say this all the time, and I'm not sure where I heard it, but there is an entire Panama Palindrome world on the web. What fun.
