My Garden

“My Garden,” Friend, May 2003, 31

My Garden

In spring,

I spade my garden,

(Pretend to dig.)

Then make a

long, straight row.

(Pretend to make a row with a hoe.)

I place the seeds in

one by one

(Plant seeds.)

And cover them,

just so.

(Pat dirt over seeds with hands.)

I water all

the little seeds,

(Sprinkle seeds with pretend watering can.)

Pull weeds

until it’s neat.

(Pretend to pull weeds.)

Then I pick

my vegetables.

(Bend over and pick.)

And eat,

and eat, and eat.

(Pretend to eat vegetables.)
