Grow It Yourself!

It may not have escaped the more astute followers of my Blog that Marigold and Mariella, my half sisters, are rather more ‘traditionally built’ than my svelte, lithe self. This is due the the vast quantities of salad they consume. As well as their regular meals – breakfast, mid morning snacks, late morning snacks, lunch, afternoon tea, high tea, tea and supper for example Marigold has perfected an ingenious method for obtaining even more fresh salad.

Here she is in action.

Marigold: ‘Fairy, can you test that tunnel out, over there, for cosiness please. You will need to spend a few minutes in it to check is it just the right size to provide the correct amount of squeeziness. Do take your time, won’t you?’

Come on, Mariella! We need to nibble very fast before we are spotted!

Hahaha! Very funny, Marigold! I bet you thought I wouldn’t notice you and Mariella tucking in to my Grow-It-Yourself-Grass!

It is rather tasty and I don’t mind sharing. You can both have another mouthful if you like.

Whoa! Not such a big mouthful, go steady . . . there won’t be anything left for my supper.

Mum! MUUM!! Can you come here, Marigold and Mariella have finished now and want to go back in to the playhouse! NOW!

That was a scary moment, I thought they were going to eat it ALL! I think we should order some more seed and plant them a garden of their own. There are some things one doesn’t mind sharing, and maybe I can think of something later. Anyway, Grow-It-Yourself-Grass isn’t called Grow-It-YOURSELF-Grass for nothing!

  1. I adore how Fairy shares with her sisters but is careful to safeguard her supply of fresh grass by demanding mum come and take her sisters back to the playhouse! Too cute. And indeed, she is svelte.

  2. I have so missed Fairy and her pals while I have been on my holiday. These latest photos and stories are absolutely wonderful! It was lovely to see her get her very own garden, maybe Mariella and Marigold could have one each for their own Birthdays.
    Thank you Fairy, you brightened our home coming no end!

    Have you checked to ensure these are indeed Guinea Pigs and not Hobbits?

  4. Hello,

    I’m a visitor from Malaysia and a proud dad for 3 guinea pigs. I have to say I LOVE your grow-it-yourself grass and wondering where I can get some myself, preferably online. I live in an apartment, so my GPs cant play on the yard or garden, but those lovely grasses should be good to compensate for lack of fresh grasses.

    Again, LOVE your blog, and keep on writing!

  5. Hello emino and hello to your 3 guineas too!
    I am sure your guineas would love the Grow-It-Yourself-Grass! We get ours from Planet Guinea, a new online shop will appear there any day now. We are just about to do a ‘featurette’ on this product! Watch this space.
    Thanks for calling by, we are so glad you enjoyed Fairy’s Blog!
