USEFUL VEGETABLES

[87]

In the heart of a seed buried deep, so deep,

A dear little plant lay fast asleep.

"Wake!" said the sunshine, "and creep to the light."

"Wake!" said the voice of the raindrops bright.


The little plant heard, and it rose to see

What the wonderful outside world might be.

What vegetables grow in your neighborhood?

Of which do we use the roots as food? Of which the leaves? Of which the seeds? Of which the stems or stalks?

Which is the most use- [88] ful garden vegetable? There is no common garden vegetable so highly thought of as the potato. How are potatoes planted?

Answer the questions in writing so as to make a little composition about vegetables.
