Ms. Greenthumb’s garden is busy with activity. Deep in the ground, something is happening, crashing, stretching, grunting…and pop! The seeds are sprouting, busting through their shell. The plants are pushing their way to the top of the soil. “Alas, fresh air and warm sunshine, but we sure could use a drink of water,” say the peas. “Hey, Mr. Dandelion, you’re blocking my rays and stealing my water. Who invited you to the garden party?” “Wait! do you hear that?” says the bean. Thump, thump, thump, thump, thump thump. “Oh no, it is a rabbit, and he is coming toward us.”
These are only a few of the many challenges they face living and growing in the garden.
