Jake carried the hoe. Posey brought the watering can. And Cecil held the seeds. It was time to plant the garden. But then the trouble started. No one could agree on what to plant, and soon it was too hot to work. Sadly, Cecil went off to visit the neighbors.

Sometimes all it takes is a little time away from your family to see that you are really pretty lucky. When Cecil went home, he knew how to solve the garden problem. And when harvest time came, there was no disagreement at all!
