A good chance the
Gardener has been over-watering. Not the first time it's
happened, kind of like a definition of madness, it
happens with a sad regularity. And there's a good chance
that not all Red Norland will achieve fruiting body
because there's a good chance the Gardener planted far
too early following a winter cold that reached deeper
into the earth than anticipated.
probably seven or eight Toads in the Vegetable Garden. In
people terms they are maybe twenty year olds. Not venerable
Toads, a difficult status for Vegetable Garden Toads to
aspire to given the constant hacking around in cold soil by
Gardeners. The one young Toad has a front left paw missing.
He has the name Stumpy. And funny how much more venerable
Stumpy would sound in German, Stumpfartig.
