No news on my turnips yet. I planted 5 into a little patch next to my barn and I've been watering them daily. Bernard the goat came over and had a nose. He wasn't particularly impressed and reckoned I'm more likely to grow some magic beans than turnips. Which, if I'm honest, I think I'd prefer! Imagine having magic beans!!! That would be great. I'm not entirely sure what magic beans would do, but I'm sure it would be brilliant. Lenny reckons with magic beans you could grow a big "beanstalk" and then climb up it into the clouds, enter the castle of a big evil giant and then steal his golden goose. Lenny saw it on the news once, so it must be true. A golden goose would be obviously fab, and I'd be a millionaire (I'd give Lenny a fiver to buy the latest Sugababes CD, so that should keep him happy). I could then go on a world tour of the world and learn about different cultures and discover everything there is to know about various turnips from different continents.
In other news; I think I'm being followed... by a CARRIER BAG!!! No, really. I was walking over to the chickens' place this morning and this blue carrier bag from Bob's newsagent was definitely following me! I wondered whether Bob the newsagent suspected me of stealing curly-wurlies or something and sent out a spy bag to spy on me. Well, it could happen.
