Michael Pollan has been quoted, "I would quicken at the sight of a ripe tomato, sounding its redness from deep amidst the undifferentiated green". I agree. There is nothing more suspicious than a red tomato. That is why I have taken it upon my spy self to capture and consume every tomato from the garden. I intend to assume control over the potted plant again this season.
 I have dreams about giant cherry tomatoes taking over the yard,leaving no place for Professor Wensleydale, Claire, and myself to partake in rambunctious behaviour.
In my dream I devour them one by one as they ripen.
 Sometimes I disguise myself in glasses and moustache, as a cigar smoking man of mystery
while I scope and stalk the garden. 

I've also taken it upon myself to decapitate and eat various mustard coloured flowers. 
As Gromit and Mum plan seeds for the garden, I continue to prepare myself an invasion of tomatoes and other untrustworthy plants.

  1. I admire your plan! I wish I could infiltrate our garden for some of the things that grow out there.
