Jake and Jackie Learn about Gardening, Part 1
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "What are you doing, Grandpa?" asked Jake.
 
2     "I'm helping your mom plant her garden." Grandpa answered.
 
3     "Can we help?" asked Jackie, who was again over at Jake's house to play. Jake shot her a look. He didn't want to work in a garden. He wanted to play catch. Normally, Jackie was a good sport and went along with whatever game Jake wanted to play.
 
4     "Sure, Jackie," Grandpa said. "There's an extra pair of gardening gloves over there on the bench."
 
5     Jackie skipped over to the bench while Jake rolled his eyes and sighed. He headed to the bench as well, though with a lot less enthusiasm.
 
6     After Jake and Jackie had their gloves on, Grandpa told them to get two hoes. These tools looked like mini square shovels, angled at the end of a wooden handle. Grandpa showed them how to use the hoes to loosen the soil and remove weeds.
 
7     Jake and Jackie hoed for quite awhile. Jackie was whistling. Jake was huffing and puffing. Finally, they had three rows of soft soil.
 
8     "Great," Grandpa said. "Now we can plant."
 
9     Grandpa brought out a tray of seedlings. "I have marigolds, tomatoes, and beans," he explained.
