Green Mater Gardener

It is a sad day for Montgomery Nutz….momma peep took down the garden. Gardening is my favorite outdoor activity next to mushroom hunting. I don’t know if I’ve told you about mushroom hunting yet but our yard is a mushroom haven, I’ll tell you about it some other time. It is kind of a long story and I want to talk about tomatoes.

Every year we plant a garden. I go outside with momma peep and watch where she puts all the seeds because I’ve been around long enough to know, where seeds go in the ground, food comes out….YUMMY FOOD! I get so excited when I see the seeds.

It started a few years ago. I wasn’t around the first year to see the seeds go in the ground but I showed up when the tomato plants were grown. Momma peep used to take us all outside in the back yard to play. We would go out for hours and run in the backyard, I always tried to run off and go where I couldn’t be seen. This first year I was hiding behind the garden next to the most awesome smell I had ever smelt; when I looked over, there they were; little round green and red berries a.k.a. cherry maters. I swiped one off the plant to try and that was it….I was HOOKED! Momma peep doesn’t know this but I stood there the entire time we were outside eating fallen maters. She had no idea about what was going on, that is until she found me.

One day when we were playing, for way shorter than our normal outdoor visit, she caught me. She was calling for me to come in and I hadn’t switched off my selective hearing yet so I didn’t listen. I guess she got really mad because before long, I saw her coming up behind me and I knew my buffet was about to end. So I did what any Nut would do……I grabbed as many green maters as I could in one bite. I ended up with a tomato branch in my mouth I stole so many. But I ate them all….QUICKLY! I wasn’t going to chance her taking any of them from me. They were mine. It was this day momma peep realized she had a gardening pup.

Over the years we have had many gardens and I am pleased to say, aside from the tomatoes; I like carrots, lettuce, and I even made off with a cantaloupe once. That was YUMMY, but not very often is there one small enough I can take off with, but when there is….BEWARE! I guess I will have to wait until next year now, which I hear will ROCK because the new house will have a bigger garden. OH I CAN HARDLY WAIT! I’m ALWAYS ready for a mouthful of GREEN MATERS….MMMMMMMM!!!!

My Friend Click

Hi everybody, I know you have heard of me. My name is Peekan RooRoo. Peenutz is my daddy. Shhhh please, I stole the computer from him, he is sleeping. I wanted to tell you about my friend in the floor. Every year he visits me and I can’t wait. I call him Click because right before he shows up I hear a click and I know he is coming. It is my signal to jump up and get ready to greet him. He only visits when it is cold outside and he doesn’t stay for long which is why I run so excitedly when I hear him coming. He brings me warmth, lots of it. I just LOVE HIM, but lately others have been trying to steal him from me. I’ve been having trouble finding room to greet him when he arrives and I don’t want him to stop coming. I’m worried.

The reason I’m worried is Kashoo and Maks are trying to greet him and Poppa Nutz is right, Maks is a tard. He alone could run off my friend. Maks thinks I am his and I feel like he is getting a little jealous of my friend time because now when he hears the click he runs over to my waiting spot and there isn’t room for me. I have to boot him out with my butt, which works, but only for a minute. He is like a boomerang and just as quickly as he goes he comes right back. By this time I’ve already claimed my spot so I don’t boot him out again. I let him wait with me in hopes that he will like my friend, but really I don’t care. I will visit no matter if Maks likes it or not. Click was my friend first, but I know I should share.

OOOOOHHHH, I GOT TO GO……I JUST HEARD CLICK. Here is a picture so you can see what I mean. We are sitting where Click arrives and when he does my ears blow with excitement and my whole body warms up. I gotta go…..HE IS HERE! Later peeps!

P.S. Please don’t tell Poppa Nut I was here. He doesn’t know it but he is a little like Maks…..STUPID, but we don’t tell him that. He will only know I was here if someone tells him so again….SSSHHHHH PLEASE! I’m sure I will steal the computer again one day. Until then…..Peekan RooRoo OUT!
