Green Fingers and Thumbs
Deirdery is determined to have the prize winning marrow this year! So determined, she purchased a cow to ensure fresh manure plus a budget-busting apparatus to store last year's marrow at just the right temperature until the day she could break open the marrow and harvest its seeds for planting! Even though there are several days until the first day of spring, and even longer until the danger of frost has passed, Deirdery, posing as Dr. Digi's House of Stamps adorable gardener, Green Fingers and Thumbs, has decided today is the day to get cracking on this year's blue ribbon! She shoveled the manure and mixed it into the earth and now she's ready to split open the marrow and collect the seeds. Won't she be upset when she finds that over the winter critters have made a lovely home inside her prized marrow and have gotten overly plump indulging in seeds!
