Do you grow salad?
Sometimes people who live in towns and cities don't know where salad comes from.
- You’re a gardener, Peter, I know.
You’ve got a garden, what do you grow?
- Apples and pears, pumpkins and greens,
Strawberries, carrots, egg-plants and beans.
- Have you grown salad this summer?
- Ha! Salad isn’t grown, it’s cooked, Anna!
Taste this tomato.
________________- Oh! So red and big!
- I grew it in July. Do you like it?
