“After eating lots of healthy dog food, I got as strong as a lion.”
“Ms. Zulu is already 11.5 years old and has helped put in many vegetable gardens.”
“She taught me that you need to dig a whole lot if you want to plant vegetables and fruit trees in your garden.”
“I like to help her with it. It’s hard work but we don’t mind because the fruit of this kind of labor is sweet.”
“I love to sniff the plants and trees in the garden; they all have a different scent. I often see bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds on the flowers.”
“I recently learned that these are important pollinators. Without them we would not be able to grow most fruit and vegetables.”
“Pesticides kill pollinators and are bad for us too; that’s why we don’t use pesticides in our backyard. Better be safe than sorry.”
“Here we are in front of a banana tree, showing the fruit as well as carrots. There are lots of vitamins in the bananas and carrots. The good news is that these are so tasty that we enjoy eating healthy in between meals.”
“So let’s dig and plant some fruits and veggies!”

⭐ THANK YOU Benji & Ms. Zulu ⭐
The garden is so happy that you came to host, that the Onion, Potato and Robin have formed a band and are writing a song for you.
The onion is the percussionist, and the potato plays guitar.
Of course the Robin is the singer!

Thirteen! proclaimed the clock, and then stopped striking. Tom’s mind gave a jerk: had it really struck thirteen?
For Tom – angry and alone – the stroke of thirteen brings an escape to another time.
A magical, secret time and place, where friendships await and nothing is as it seems…
Look at this particularly fantastic cover it just screams out ‘read me’, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to do just that. It wasn’t until I’d read the ending that I realised I had actually watched the wonderful BBC version in the 80’s, back when kids TV was made to be sinister and engrossing. I may have to do a post on that….
I have long been a firm believer that silence challenges the reader’s imagination and as ever I chose that medium in which to immerse myself in this wonderful book, a masterpiece the cover…
