“Hi this is Benji and Ms. Zulu. We were asked by Resa to host the vegetable garden mural for Kid’s Month.”
“This is quite an honor and we are happy to assist. Of course we are hoping to get a tasty snack for our modeling work.”
“As you can see, I used to be very small.”
“Humans are omnivores and need to eat lots of veggies and fruit.”
“Dogs are canines and we love veggies and fruit, just be sure not to feed us the wrong kinds, see Vegetables & Fruits Dogs Can & Can’t Eat”
“After eating lots of healthy dog food, I got as strong as a lion.”
“Ms. Zulu is already 11.5 years old and has helped put in many vegetable gardens.”
“She taught me that you need to dig a whole lot if you want to plant vegetables and fruit trees in your garden.”
“I like to help her with it. It’s hard work but we don’t mind because the fruit of this kind of labor is sweet.”
“I love to sniff the plants and trees in the garden; they all have a different scent. I often see bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds on the flowers.”
“I recently learned that these are important pollinators. Without them we would not be able to grow most fruit and vegetables.”
“Pesticides kill pollinators and are bad for us too; that’s why we don’t use pesticides in our backyard. Better be safe than sorry.”
“Here we are in front of a banana tree, showing the fruit as well as carrots. There are lots of vitamins in the bananas and carrots. The good news is that these are so tasty that we enjoy eating healthy in between meals.”
“So let’s dig and plant some fruits and veggies!”

⭐ THANK YOU Benji & Ms. Zulu ⭐
The garden is so happy that you came to host, that the Onion, Potato and Robin have formed a band and are writing a song for you.
The onion is the percussionist, and the potato plays guitar.
Of course the Robin is the singer!

“Of course, the garden needs water, just like you and me.”
“Ms. Zulu and I love to help with this task and always want first dibs. The water from the hose is sooo refreshing, it’s hard to resist.”
I want to remind everyone to check up on vegetables that dogs can and can’t eat. Just click on the pick below to read all about it.
