Relish It

It might not seem like much, but it’s a lot of work to grow plants and fruits this perfect! You gotta keep them watered and clean, let them breathe, clear away the wilting leaves and the wasted flowers, chase away the pests, keep away any dust or mildew that might form… And I’m only little! It takes me all day to keep these greenhouses running perfectly!

My prize this year is this tomato plant. It grows a sweet, fleshy variety that’s perfect in cheese sandwiches with a little pickle… and what a crop we’ve had this year! I’m going to have so many sandwiches, make so many chutneys and pickles and preserves, I’m going to cook some with herbs and spices, I’m going to eat them fresh off the vine! I can’t wait! Just a few more days and I’ll be able to eat my squeaky little heart out.
