As the carrot grows round and big
The juices inside gain deliciousness I wonder if it’s ready to dig?
You just have to guess.
The mint grows like a weed
Useful in many ways, It’s a great herb indeed.
Although it will be picked eventually, in the garden it stays.
The basil shoots from the ground
You must pick the flowers off the top
And pick the leaves before they are browned What a great crop!
The cucumber plant is a vine
Climbing up the lattice Helping it grow as straight as a line.
In our garden, cucumbers have a high status!
Gardening is quite fun
As long as we have the shining sun.
