Flowers, Veggies and Slugs

My veggie garden is growing slowly, but surely, and the flower garden is finely almost weed-free. One of our favorite plants is both a yummy veggie and a beautiful flower - an artichoke plant. If you've planted a garden, here are a few stories to enjoy with your young gardeners as you wait for it to mature.

Muncha, Muncha, Muncha by Candace Fleming. Mr. McGreeley has decided to plant the garden of his dreams, but pesky twitch-nosers keep ruining his plans.

My Garden by Kevin Henkes. A little girl helps her mother get their garden ready and imagines all the things that will grow there.

Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. Follow the planting of a garden from bulbs and seeds to the rainbow of things that grow there.

The Ugly Vegetables by Grace Lin. A little girl thinks her mother has planted a garden of ugly vegetables, until she tastes her mother's Chinese vegetable soup.
