Little Red Hen

Years ago the children’s garden theme was The Little Red Hen.  Gardeners know there is much work to be done and helpers are need.  The little red hen is surrounded by noisy farm animals and a lazy dog.  She needs to harvest the wheat crop and bake bread.  Whenever she asked for help, all she heard was “Not I!”  Her rely was always, “Fine, then I will just have to do it myself.”

Yet, when it was time to enjoy the fresh-baked bread, all the animals showed up for a bite.  Do you remember what the little red hen said?
