Book Description from Back CoverWhen a little girl and her mother dig, plant, and water their garden, they do things differently than their neighbors. They use shovels, but their neighbors use trowels. They use a hose, but their neighbors use watering cans.
And when their plants grow, they look different. The neighbors' flowers look beautiful. The little girl thinks their own vegetables are just plain ugly. But when harvest time comes, Mom knows just what to do….
Discover the magic that grows in a vegetable garden (with a little help from Mom). Find out what might happen if you, too, plant ugly vegetables.
