CLICK on the video link above, and you too can dance and sing-a-long to my song, "My Little Veggie Patch."
I love being outdoors and working and playing in my garden. 
Breathing in the fresh air and listening to the birds singing and bees buzzing is a great way to spend a morning or afternoon.
I love to sing songs when I'm pottering around and planting herbs and veggies in the ground. 

Here is my song lyric about honey bees:

Who's in the garden, working while we play? 

Who's making honey for us everyday? 

Who's the little worker bee-ing great in every way? 

If you know, if you know, step right up and say.

Honey bees, honey bees, honey bees with big responsibilities. 

Little bees, little bees, little bees need awesome capabilities.

Never tease, never tease, never tease those amazing "littlies".

         Honey bees, honey bees, honey bees. Love my honey bees.   

Did you know that there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects? So it is the world's most important pollinator. Approximately one third of the food we eat each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, and other insects, like; butterflies, wasps, moths, ants and beetles. Also birds and flying foxes, too.

Song lyrics about some of the healthy veggies in my garden: 

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.

Sweet potato, watermelon, peas and broccollini.

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!

Below is a list of what I have planted in my garden, behind Nix & Nax. I use a lot of my fresh veggies and herbs when I make snaxalicious snacks.              
But first, here are some tips that may help before you start to plant.

Trees - The biggest Plants on our Planet:

Trees provide nectar and pollen for our bees,
And some of the oxygen we breathe comes from trees.
Urban trees and forests save one life every year,
Absorbing harmful carbon from the atmosphere.
Trees help clean the air that we breathe,
And shade us from sun when we sit underneath.
Trees for environmental conservation,
and for birds, insects and wildlife habitation.
These clever trees growing up from the ground
Are vital for survival all year round.
