Answer Key & Explanation






As the diagram shows, planting watermelon is difficult.





According to the diagram, spinach grows best in shady conditions, so a sunny yard doesn’t fit the growth of spinach.



plenty of space


The diagram says growing pumpkin requires lots of room to grow. 



most helpful


Lemongrass   Gardening Center says “we are here to make your garden a success”.   They hold workshops every week, and they have knowledgeable staff for interested customers to turn to.



carrots and spinach


According to the diagram, carrots can be harvested at any size, so the time of the harvest doesn’t matter. 

Spinach can be picked when its leaves are 7-10 cm long.

At the beginning of his letter, Alan tells Lucy, “Any interest in planting a vegetable garden?” 



It is an affordable way to   eat healthy food

to provide examples of things they can grow
