    My Garden

    In spring, I spade my garden, (Pretend to dig.)

    Then make a long, straight row. (Act like you are making a row with a hoe.)

    I place the seeds in, one by one, (Plant seeds.)

    And cover them just so. (Pat dirt over seeds.)

    I water all the little seeds, (Sprinkle seeds with watering can.)

    Pull weeds until it’s neat. (Pretend to pull weeds.)

    And then I pick my vegetables, (Bend over and pick.)

    And eat and eat and eat. (Eat tomatoes, corn, carrots, peas, etc.)
