    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.
