by JakeT December 18, 2013

On the first day of Christmas, my manager gave to me,

Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the second day of Christmas, my Manager gave to me;

Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the third day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the fourth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the fifth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the sixth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the seventh day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the eighth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Eight tractors breaking, Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the ninth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Nine leaks a springing, Eight tractors breaking, Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the tenth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Ten staff are lazy, Nine leaks a springing, Eight tractors breaking, Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Eleven wires snapping, Ten staff are lazy, Nine leaks a springing, Eight tractors breaking, Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.

 

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my manager gave to me:

Twelve stakes a breaking, Eleven wires snapping, Ten staff are lazy, Nine leaks a springing, Eight tractors breaking, Seven shoots a thinning, Six buds a shooting, Five broken things, Four wires snapping, Three posts a-leaning, Two bunches rotting and Botrytis in my canopy.
