Organic Love 4/30

I came across a writing prompt that challenged me to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities.

Well…. Here is what I have. Let’s call this Organic Love
