The surface of the earth is the ground. A tree stands above the ground, but its roots are under the ground. The roots get food for the tree out of the earth; they also hold the tree to the ground when the wind blows.
When a tree is young, it is very small; but it grows year after year. It gets taller and taller, its trunk gets bigger and bigger; its branches get longer and longer, and there are more and more green leaves on its branches.
The leaves of trees are green in summer. They get brown or red in autumn, and then they fall to the ground when the wind blows. But in spring, new green leaves come out again on the branches, and also pink or white blossoms which will give fruit later, in summer or in autumn.
A fruit tree gives us fruit to eat. Fruit is good to eat when it is ripe; then it is sweet.
People have gardens and kitchen gardens. In the gardens people grow : apple trees, pear trees, plum trees, cherry trees. In the kitchen gardens people grow vegetables, which are very good to eat, too: carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbages, potatoes.
Which part of a plant do we eat? We eat the roots of carrots, the leaves of cabbages, the red fruit of tomatoes. We also eat a lot of potatoes.
