A Garden Bed

An excerpt:

Hive, bee, wings, hum
Husk, cob, corn, yum!
Tomato blossom, fruit so red
All the world's a garden bed

I thought this poetic excerpt from the picture book All the World was appropriate for July.  We expanded the vegetable garden in our backyard this year -- it's still not all that big, but it's filled with healthy foods, including tomatoes and corn.  We haven't been able to harvest those yet, but have used quite a bit of our fresh lettuce and green peppers already, yum!
