    I'm Jela, 48, from South Carolina. I just started planting last year, about a month after the pandemic started, and I'll admit that I've been enjoying it too much. LOL!

    I hope you're all doing well.

    Welcome to Garden Stew! I'm sure you'll also love it here. You'll find everybody is warn and welcoming. And always ready to share their knowledge.

    As for the pandemic, we have had a few new members, who also started gardening during these challenging times. Some did it because they always wanted to, but never had the time, (lockdowns gave them the perfect opportunity). While others decided that they wanted to grow their own food, and become as independent as possible - It was fun and very rewarding in both ways. We also enjoyed seeing their progress.

    :cool:



    :rofl:

    Sorry, just couldn't resist posting this video.

    It's a style of poetry, originally from Japan. But now practiced in many different languages also. Usually consists of just 3 words, a start, a middle with meaning, and an end. The composer has to get the message across in just 3 rhyming words. Art is to see exactly how much of a message can you squeeze in such a style of poetry.

    Haiku in the classic sense (unless I was mistaken) are poems consisting of:
    - three lines, and
    - 5-7-5 syllables structure.

    Rhyming in haiku has never been necessary.

    I added the rhyme because it was a terrible haiku...

    PS - A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count.

    Yup 3 lines 17 syllables. Usually poems about the spring and the external world. Senryu another Japanese poem form, the same as haiku 5 7 5 syllables, but about the game of go and the internal world.

    The ocean is big.
    Opinions floating are plenty.
    Yet hardly anyone intelligent, who can count beyond twenty.
