ROLL OUT THE BARREL
I read of the experiments
Some growers made with beer,
And I was so intrigued with it,
I thought I'd try it here.
Now this decision that
I made Was bigger than you think.
I hate to see it used on plants,
When it's so good to drink.
But I went out and bought a case
And put it on the shelf.
I figured if it didn't work,
I'd drink the rest myself.
I then proportioned some the way
Most others seem to do,
With forty parts of water,
to Each part of 'sudsy brew'.
Although I haven't used it long,
I see a hopeful sign.
For all my seedlings have perked up;
They're really looking fine.
The moral is, that if you think
Your plants are feeling punk,
By all means get a case of beer,
And get them good and drunk.
