"My goodness," exclaimed Ben, "your garlic scapes are ready to pick..."
"Me too," said Jerry, "I am going to do an inspection to see if the bees survived the rain. This is a beary important job you know."
"Hmmmm... looks like the strawberries are almost ready."
"Ooooh!!! I think I see one!... Oh wait... it's a red-painted rock!"
"What the heck??.... Oh wait... Sandy's mom says that these are decoys to fool the vermin. The idea is that they will bite the rocks and learn to leave the strawberries alone. Must make a note of this technique."
"But there are some real strawberries in here too."
"look at that one... mmmmmm..."
"It was beary good!"
"Sandy's garden also has a bunch of red poppies in it... but I don't see any bees yet."
"A beautiful foxglove... Little Fox would like this!
Meanwhile... we get to harvest garlic scapes... ooohhh...
We need a pair of clippers...
And a steady paw... Whew... these sure smell like garlic!
"And then we put them all in this bag," said Ben, "Later we will make garlic scape pesto!"
Catching up with Jerry... "Shhh... be beary beary quiet... do you see it?? On the lettuce???"
"Near my left ear??"
"It's a bee!!! A massive, ginormous bumble bee... On the lettuce!!"
"Isn't it beautiful??? Maybe it's drinking lettuce sap?? I think we need to branch out at home and plant some lettuce!"
"I'll have to make notes to bring home to Papa..."
