I always plant a large garden every year
Once my watermelons were ate by a deer
A bountiful garden comes once in a while
Gives food on the table and makes me smile

I plant watermelons, corn, squash, and peas
The sunflowers I plant are food for the bees
I once grew cantaloupes as sweet as honey
Once my squash was zucchini, it was funny

Many times my gardens have survived drought
A few times it drowned, O how I did pout
Despite the weather, the insects and the weeds
I'll plant my garden with a variety of seeds

Those tiny seeds will spring from the ground
O my I spy another fire ant mound
It's a battle to have a bountiful harvest
But each year I plant and pray for the best

I know gardens are a gift from above
I plant mine with care and tend it with love
The garden of Eden was planted by God
I wonder how he felt as he worked the sod

This year I ate some silver queen corn
I picked it from my garden one Friday morn
Straight from the stalk to the pot it went
That sweet corn was worth the effort spent
