In the Garden

“In the Garden,” Friend, Aug. 1993, 28–29

In the Garden

Squash, tomatoes, purple beets

Are some of nature’s garden treats.

Sun and rain will help them grow.

The weeds are dug up with a hoe.

A shed is there to store the tools.

Put them back—obey the rules!

Lettuce, carrots, potatoes, too,

Can then be harvested by you.
