A patient Gram and her spirited grandson follow the cycle of the seasons as they savor the shared joy of growing things.
Gram and Joe are great friends, and they love to spend time together, taking care of the vegetable patch-with a little help from nature, of course. But it takes a lot of patience. There’s digging time, planting time, weeding time, watering time, even thinking time. Meanwhile, the seasons change, and Gram does things her way, while Joe does things his way. Come harvest time, they each will find wondrous surprises, thanks to the benevolence of the good brown earth.
