Gardening with the GED students


In the Garden

Today we will go to the Garden

Young teen hands, not used to dirt and mud
Eager to see how their little seeds have grown
Uncontrolled in their rowdy romping

Today we will water the dry dirt
Pull out weeds
Plant more seeds

Try to focus on what the garden tells us
The weather guides what and when
The seasons change
Quickly here in this little desert garden

Lettuce grows and bolt too soon
Cabbage heads grow large in just a cycle of the moon
Tomatoes and Peppers already flowering in February
Their radishes popped up in just a week

What will we see in our Garden today?
