Constant Gardener

I’ll cultivate my garden in the safety of my yard

I’ll plant, weed and water crops

I’ll share the harvest, in a box

next to you outside the gate

I’ll till the soil when frost comes

I’ll prepare for winter months

I’ll store root vegetables in the cellar

to protect you from loss

I’ll set a portion aside for spring

I’ll sort and clean and plant

I’ll start the seedlings once again

each time that you come back
