Busy Izzy and Friends on YouTube:

Do you eat your veggies? Busy Izzy and her friends do, they love to eat healthy fruits and vegetables because they know it keeps them strong and healthy too.

Busy Izzy's veggie garden is at the back of Nix & Nax. There is a compost bin full of scraps from when Izzy makes and bakes healthy snacks.

The compost bin has a little red wiggler worm called 'Wormee', a compost-vermi, and his friends too, who just love turning the scraps into vermi-compost.

Here is an excerpt from Roxanne's poem about 'Wormee' on 

Composting at home with Busy Izzy

"Just a taste of rotting waste, we'll all be moving in. They're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin."

Izzy has a beehive with honey bees. These hard working littlies pollinate the fruits and vegetables. Pollination occurs when insects such as bees visit flowers, collecting nectar and pollen. Pollen is rubbed onto the insect and is then rubbed off onto the next flower the insect visits.

Izzy loves to garden, looking after her vegetables with a lot of love and care and watering too. Newly Truly loves to help Izzy in the garden. In book three, "Busy Izzy and Talkative Tess", you will see Newly Truly along side his best friend, Izzy, helping with the planning, planting and digging too. All of their friends love to help. It's fun to be outdoors.

There are plenty of fruit trees and vegetables in Izzy's garden. Apple trees, lemon trees, orange trees, tomatoes, beans, turnips and leafy greens, pumpkin, cabbage, avocado, onion, sweet potato, watermelon, peas and broccolini. Carrots, corn and cauliflower and zucchini, are good for you and good for me because they are nutritious and very snaxalicious.

Here are the lyrics to The Vegetable Song - My Little Veggie Patch.

Now you can sing and dance along to this upbeat vegetable song.

My little veggie patch


The food in my little veggie patch

Is positively naturally healthy.

The sunlight and water make it grow, grow, grow! 

The soil is organic so i know, know, know!

The food in my little veggie patch

Is positively naturally healthy.


Let’s plant some tomatoes and plant some beans.

Plant some turnips and lots of leafy greens

Grow some pumpkin and cabbage too

Have an avocado. It’s good for you!


Apples and oranges are nice and sweet.

Onions are savoury but good to eat.

Food is good for every boy and girl.

Good food comes from all around the world.


Sweet potato, watermelon, peas and broccolini

Carrots, corn and cauliflower and zucchini.

Are good for you and good for me

Because they are nutritious....and

Very, very, very, very,

Very, very, very, very,

Very, very, very snaxalicious!


The food in my little veggie patch is

Positively, absolutely, vegetably, infinitely,

Naturally healthy

Talkative Tess - Lyric Video with Animation
Talkative Tess - Lyric Video with Animation

Here at Busy Izzy and Friends we love our friends unconditionally and when things go wrong unexpectedly, sometimes a friend is all you need to be.

In book three in the series: Busy Izzy and Talkative Tess. Things did go a bit wrong when Tess was talking to her friends and not watching what she was doing.  SO a bit of paint was spilt and all over her friends.  At the time they were a bit upset with Tess, but soon got over it and realised it is important to always be a good friend.  Tess, apologised and all was well.  Busy Izzy had a quite word to Tess and said,

"Tess, things shouldn’t always be about you, and only be seen from your point of view. Listening to your friends shows that you care. They may have stories that they want to share. If we don’t listen, then we won’t learn. Talk to your friends, then give them a turn.”

Izzy was always friendly and nice, whenever she offered important advice.
