|08 Max's Worm Cake|
This is a perfect place to plant our marigolds.
There's nice rich soil here.
Marigolds love that.
Especially if it has worms in it!
That's disgusting Max!
We're going to make a Marigold garden.
Aren’t we Curly Shirley?
There's just the right amount of sunlight here.
Marigolds need sunlight to turn yellow and stay yellow!
Max! What are you doing with my gardening trowel?
You can't make a wormcake here.
I'm planting my dollies' marigold garden.
Come over here.
You can make your disgusting wormcake over here.
Put anything you like in it, over here.
I'll plant my marigolds over there!
Now where is it?
There it is.
A perfect marigold trowel.
Okay, now I'm ready to start planting my marigolds.
We learned all about planting marigolds in school.
If you watch very carefully,
and listen to everything I say,
you'll know what marigolds need to grow big and beautiful.
What we need is some water to loosen this soil up.
Marigolds need water.
Just like you and I do.
If they don't have water, they just shrivel up and die.
That water will make it much easier to dig.
Now, we'll save all this soil till later.
Then, we'll put it around the marigold's roots to keep them warm at night.
Marigolds need soil in their bed just like we need blankets on our bed.
When you’re digging you should always be on the lookout for things that marigolds need.
Look what I found.
This is what I’m talking about.
You need stones when you're planting marigolds too.
They help hold the water around the roots so the marigolds can drink.
Okay, I think the hole is deep enough.
Now... I’ll get one of the most important things marigolds need!
Now where is it?
There it is! Perfect!
This is organic plant food.
Marigolds need organic plant food just like Max and I need strawberry jam sandwiches.
Okay, now I think I've got everything.
The hole, water, soil, worms, stones, plant food.
Ooops! I forgot the most important thing of all!
Now where did I put them?
There they are!
Aren't they beautiful?
I knew you'd like them.
Now comes the final step.
We put the marigolds in the hole.
Next we put some water in...
What happened to all the water?
Where are the worms?
And the stones?
And the plant food?
And the soil?
Max! What did you do with them?
Max! You used everything for your wormcake!
Now I can't plant marigolds in my dollies' garden!
I don't want your disgusting wormcake!
I want the things my marigolds need to grow big and beautiful.
Don’t you remember what they need, Max?
Thank you Max.
