Read in January, 2012

A little imagination goes a long way...Pig lives on Mrs. Pippin's apple farm. He eats apples every day. But, he is sick of it and apples! He stares longingly and lovingly at the vegetables in the garden. Oh!...how he longs for some tasty potatoes, or yummy onions, or crunchy lettuce, or exciting squash. Ok, you get the idea. He creeps up to the garden fence and crash!...Pig goes tumbling in. The squash is delicious!

Mrs. Pippins is not happy. When pig is tied up and the rain comes, the ground is perfect for a garden. Where oh where will the seeds come from? Ploop! Pig had them all along!!

A Garden for Pig is tongue-in-cheek look at organic gardening and how those seeds really do get planted (sometimes). The end of the book has tips for:

Planting the Garden
Keeping Weeds and Pests Away the Natural Way
Fertilizing with Compost and Worms
Making Your Own Compost Bin.

Used for "National Pig Day" Storytime: March, 2012.
