The peas need picking; we have a few beets to boil;
The squashes are ready to cook in some oil.
The beans are bursting with fiber and flavor;
So many gifts from the garden to savor.
The corn can be roasted or boiled or stewed;
All of these things are really good food.
I just can’t figure where to start
On the preparation that is my part
In this grand experiment on country life.
How did I ever become a farm wife?
