As you know, Mr. Holleygarden planted his own vegetable garden. Here's a report:
I'm lettuce. They have been eating all my family and friends down the row. Every night it seems they are out here digging up one of us. I'm trying to stay small and inconspicuous. Not sure if it will help much, though - they've also been eating the radishes and they are good at hiding!
I'm spinach. You're not going to believe this - but they ate some of us for breakfast the other day! Breakfast! Whoever heard of such. Supposedly, they were going to have eggs, toast and hollandaise sauce on top. Whew! It's really getting hot out here. I feel faint. If it doesn't cool down some, I'm going to bolt - and take my friend lettuce with me!
We're potatoes. We're hiding. We must be pretty good at it, they rarely come down here to look at us.
I am proud to be corn. I am king of the garden! I can see all the garden from here - and it needs rain.
I'm squash. I feel pretty, oh so pretty. I think I'll bloom soon!
Well, if the squash are going to bloom, us cucumbers are too! I've seen those show-off tomatoes - they already have blooms on them. They think they can attract all the bees? Not on your life! Hey - I'm good looking! It's not like I'm some old, wrinkled pickle!
Help us! Help us! We peas and beans have become deer food!!!
