That grass growing experiment we did recently went very well. The only problem being that there wasn’t quite enough to grow round, so to speak. Actually, there might well have been if Mariella had been put on a strict diet. I know, I was the only one who thought she should be on one! Anyway, we have decided that the only logical solution is to step-up grass growing production dramatically. The other day we took delivery of of some extra large bulk packs of seeds in readiness!
Here we are at The Grass Growing Manufactory and it’s action stations, all paws on deck, and other urgent sounding phrases!
As you can see, the first batch has germinated and is looking to be in fine fettle.
Daddy says that, according to the directions, the grass has to grow to 150 ‘something’s’ before it is ready. Humph – I don’t think I can be quite 150 something’s, but I certainly am ready!
Here we are at the first measuring event.
Lower away . . . steady . . . to me a bit . . . to you . . . hold it there . . .
Now let me see – it says ‘3’. Crikey, that’s another ‘147’ to go!!!!! This is going to take ages.
Daddy, are you sure that measuring device thingy hasn’t stretched?
Oh well, suppose we had better wait a bit longer – it doesn’t say anything in the directions about not being allowed a crafty sample munch or two though!
Perhaps it is time for a little bit of Fairy Magic, to help speed things along a little.
Here it is, sprinkled with my Magical Fairy Drops – they will certainly help to get it growing quickly!
Ha – they worked a treat! Looks to me like at least 200 something’s – lets get measuring.
Wow – 150 munches exactly! Looks like Daddy even managed to get the measuring thingy planted properly too.
Err, does anybody know where the exit is?
If somebody doesn’t give me a hand in a moment, I will have to eat my way out!
Now then everybody – stand aside, it is time to welcome the honoured guest (me) to the Grand Grass Opening Ceremony.
Ladies and Gentleman, Piggies and . . . err, other Piggies – Taaa-raaa-raa-raaa, I hereby declare this Tray of Grass . . officially . . . wait for it Marigold . . . OPEN!
Okay then, you can start to tuck-in now.
Oi! Don’t bite off more than you can chew, Mariella – there’s plenty for everyone!
Thanks Fairy, nom, nom, nom, burp oops pardon! This might keep us going until teatime.
Well that was jolly good while it lasted – which wasn’t quite as long as I would have wished.
Marigold and Mariella had better start working lots of overtime to ensure I have a regular crop!
You’d think everyone would have cottoned on to this ‘Grow-It-Yourself-Grass’ malarkey – it’s the bees knees! Or should that be the piggies whiskers?!
