I have four raised garden beds; three of them are filled with herbs and roses; a bit messy perhaps but their colors and fragrance bring me joy.
I’ve had trouble getting plants to grow in the fourth bed. I don’t know why.
“Benji, do you have any ideas?”
“It’s vermin, Sue. Pure and simple. But don’t worry. I’m on it!”
“Are you sure, Benji? I think you’re the problem!”
“Surely you jest, Sue! I’m trying to help. Just leave it to me.”
“Okay, Benji. I give up. It’s all yours. We’ll wait and see whether the sunflowers and dahlias rise up from the ruins.”
