Day 24 – “Growing Our Own Garden”


“Growing Our Own Garden” by Jaymie Gerard

Early every morning

When the sun has just come out

We walk into our garden

With our bucket and our spout

We give the plants a drink

Then we dig out all the weeds

We tend to all the flowers

We pinch off yellowed leaves

And then we pick the vegetables –

Tomatoes, eggplant, peas,

Cucumbers, zucchini,

Beets and mustard greens

Celery and carrots

Onions and swiss chard

Broccoli and peppers

All grow in our backyard

We bring them in and rinse them

Then we chop them up to eat

Growing our own garden

Is the most rewarding treat!
