The Kingdom of Vegetables
Vegetable is culture, and planting is arts.
Colourful flowers reflected into new graceful scenes.
Delicate and clear grand view garden is swaying in blue waters.
Roaming in the glamorous ever-green garden,
Like gliding in the brilliant scenes.
Numerous colours become body language,
Dancing there gracefully,
Seeming to listen and smell.
Vegetable fair is like the calling card of Shouguang.
When the willow catkin is floating with the wind in april,
When the flowers are blooming in spring,
This charming land will be dancing together,
A splendid symphony of struggling will be composed synchronically.
The land in Shouguang is fertile enriched by Mihe river. It is suitable for planting vegetables in ancient history, and there are description in detail in the book Important Arts for the People’s Welfare. “The leek is the best among all kinds of vegetables”,it has been served as tributes in palaces from Ming dynasty to Qing dynasty.
