A Perfect Little Garden

First plant five rows of peas:
Piety, Prudence, Prayer, Purity, Praise.

Next, plant five rows of squash:
Squash Idleness, Squash Gossip, Squash Unkindness,
Squash Self-indulgence, Squash Pride.

Then, plant five rows of lettuce:
Let-us-be humble, Let-us-be faithful, Let-us-be unselfish,
Let-us-be loving, Let-us-be sanctified.

And to make all things count for something good and worthwhile, no garden is complete without turnips:
Turn-up for church services, Turn-up to go the second mile,
Turn-up with a cheerful smile, Turn-up with a willing mind.

I thought this was so great. Again, from one of Carrie Benders books, A Golden Sunbeam.
