If You Give a Mom a Peach...

If she gets an entire bushel, she'll want to can the peaches.

If she cans the peaches, she'll want to compost the scraps (including the pits; you see where this is going don't you??).

If she composts the scraps, she'll spread the compost in the garden.

If she spreads the compost in the garden, she might end up with this:

and this:

If she ends up with baby peach trees, she may want to pot them.

And if she pots them, she'll eventually want to plant them.

If she plants them, in a few years she'll have a peach orchard.

And if she has a peach orchard, chances are she just might want another peach.

  4. Love the nod to to Laura Numeroff :)
