EDITOR DES – HIS VERY OWN GARDEN

THE BIRTH OF A GARDEN

Editor Des

The Author….me!

Well  people who know me may remember I  once had ideas of becoming a barista, to supplement my meagre editor’s wages. This didn’t work out so well, because I couldn’t get the crema quite right. Anyway, after my guardian Pauline  Conolly  accidentally grew a potato in the compost I decided to plant a  vegie garden instead, My  plan was to sell my produce at the Blackheath Farmers’ Market.

My  dear friend Dr Bob built my garden out by the wood stacks.

I thought things would grow very fast, only they didn’t. I kept watch over my potted carrot seeds night and day.

And here I would like to  thank the talented  Birmingham author Jackie Sayle for writing this little song for me and my garden;  Well specifically  for my carrots.

♪ A ray of hope flickers in my heart,
My carrot seed, it has made a start,

There’s a green shoot on this brand new morn,
This comes to pass when a carrot’s born. ♫

They came up eventually.

They came up eventually and I transferred the pot to my kitchen garden.

 

By the way, the reason my editor’s wages are so low is because my employer Pauline Conolly has not been writing enough!   She spends her time on Facebook and watching football. In my opinion this is pathetic, and rather selfish….. just saying.

Ready for the village market.

Ready for the village market. The herbs are  for free.

 

Well I love the village  market. The people there are always kind and friendly.

I might share a stall with this nice lady and her garlic.

I've earned quite a lot so far.

I’ve earned quite a lot so far.,,,,enough to buy my girlfriend Milly something really nice. Or something for  myself.
