“My Garden,” Friend, May 2001, 32

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.)
