Your First Garden

As you watch your garden grow,
even when you don't even know.
If it will produce or not
the vegetables you want a lot.

Trial and error is the game
each year will be the same.
Learning more each passing year
listening to gardeners fears.

Yet it's such a good feeling
down on your knees kneeling.
Digging and planting in the dirt,
sometimes till your body hurts.

Fighting off the all the pests,
along with weeds and all the rest.
Weeds that you always have to hoe,
so we reap what we sow.

Gardening help in many ways
relieves stress as many say.
Kids love to help weed,
thinking they are really needed.

So start a garden this spring,
see all the joy it will bring.
Exercise, veggie, to list a few,
enjoying gardening as others do.
