Grandma Hattie is known all over “Can Do” Street for having the best vegetable garden.
Since the school was starting a vegetable garden, some of the “Can Dos” wanted to know just how Grandma Hattie takes care of her vegetable garden every year. They went to visit her after school to get some advice on what vegetables to plant and when to plant them. Most of all, they needed to know how to take care of the vegetable garden.
Grandma Hattie was pleased to see the boys and invited them into her kitchen. She had taken chocolate chip cookies out of the oven just before the boys arrived. They smelled so good!
While they all sat around the kitchen table eating cookies and drinking milk, Grandma Hattie shared the secrets of a good vegetable garden.The boys listened carefully. They nodded, took notes, and asked questions.
Then Orrie asked, “What should we grow?” Grandma Hattie smiled and opened a folder next to her on the table. She took out a word jumble and said,”Whatever vegetables you can find in the jumble, I have seeds for and you may have them.”
The boys all began working on the jumble. When they finished, Grandma Hattie gave them the packages of seeds for the vegetables they found.
Why don’t you try the jumble and see if you can find a vegetable or two or three or more? Just print out the page and try to see how many vegetables you find.
Here is a list of some vegetables you may find in the jumble: corn, carrots, peas, lettuce, onions and tomatoes.
