Sally puts on her wellies.
“Wrong feet,” says Mum.
Sally puts her wellies on the right feet. That feels better.
Mum opens the door and Sally hops down the steps. One, two, three.
Mum puts on her garden gloves and kneels down by the vegetable patch.
Sally kneels down next to her and pulls out a big huge weed.
“That’s not a weed!” says Mum.” That’s an onion!”
“Oops,” says Sally and tries to put it back in the ground but it doesn’t fit anymore.
Sally finds her red shovel. She starts digging under the tree.
“Don’t dig there. I planted daffodil bulbs in the ground there.” says Mum.
“Oops,” says Sally.
Sally picks up her watering can and turns on the tap. Water splashes all over her and her dress gets wet. Sally doesn’t mind getting wet. She fills her watering can.
“Don’t give the flowers too much water Sally, we don’t want them to drown,”says Mum.
Sally puts down her watering can. She sits on the grass and looks around for something to do. She sees a big long worm sliding towards Mum.
Sally picks up the worm and shows it to Mum, “Look, a wriggley worm!”
“Yuck,” says Mum.
Sally sits down on the grass again.
“I don’t like worms but the soil loves worms,” says Mum, “Maybe you could find me lots of worms and put them in this soil. Worms make the soil really healthy. Then it will grow great vegetables.”
Sally jumps up again and finds loads of worms and spends the rest of the morning putting them in the vegetable patch.
“You’re a great helper Sally,” says Mum when it’s time to go in for lunch.
“So are you Mum,” Sally says, “Even if you are afraid of wriggley worms.”
