That year we decided to plant vegetables in the middle of the flower garden. You do strange things like that when you live in the city with a small yard. Our younger daughter was so excited at the chance to see how things grow. She picked packages of cucumber and cabbage seeds along with a tomato plant and was ready to deck herself out in overall.
After a few weeks we had a several cucumbers, tons of tomatoes and dozens of little purple heads of cabbage. Our daughter wanted to eat her produce, but bulked about the cabbage after her first bite. Not wanting Mom and Dad to know she hadn’t eaten her treasured cabbage heads she snuck them into the kitchen garbage can.
That would not have been a too bad of an end had she not bragged about how wonderful ALL the vegetables from her garden turned out. And, if Sherlock had not decided to get into the garbage can.
The next morning we were surprised to find a purple dog sitting in the middle of the kitchen.
The moral of this story:
The dye will find you out.
At least that’s the lesson one little gardener learned.
