“Good job playing the drums there Calvin,” said Christopher Corn is part of the Fresh Veggie family. I created him in honour of Chris Cornell. Christopher Corn has a very calm attitude. He can walk into a heated argument and the sound of his voice is calming. He experiments with different instruments and is the lead singer of the new rock band, "Loud Garden". Christopher's favourite instrument is the guitar. at the very first practice session of his newly found group, ‘Loud Garden’.
“Thank you,” said Calvin Carrot is part of the Fresh Veggie family. He has a carefree attitude and he likes to give people advice. He doesn't care what others think of him. He likes to play the drums..
“Let’s mix things up a bit though,” said Christopher. “I want you to speed up the tempo just before the chorus and then slow it right down when I sing the lyrics & the chorus.”
“Now,” said Calvin. “That sounds sweet.”
“Let’s try it,” said Christopher.
Calvin did what Christopher suggested. He had to admit that it sounded so much better.
“That was perfect,” smiled Christopher. “Now girls. It is time for you two to sing your parts.”
Mrs. Tomato is part of the Fresh Veggie family. She believes she was married in a previous life. She is very tender. She is afraid to say no. She plays the harp and tambourine and she also does some singing. and Olive Onion is part of the Fresh Veggie family. She is married to Oliver Onion. She is open and honest. She likes to sing. both walked up to the microphone and started singing. All of a sudden Cameron Cauliflower is part of the Fresh Veggie family. He is very caring. If someone needs a shoulder to cry on he is there. Cameron loves to dance. ran out onto the stage and started to dance up a storm. Christopher started to dance with him, playing his guitar at the same time.
Mrs. Tomato and Olive were laughing so hard that they had to stop singing. Oliver Onion is part of the Fresh Veggie family. He is married to Olive Onion. Oliver loves to write poetry and just like his wife, he is open and honest., who was watching, burst out laughing as well. The whole Farmer Fred owns a 100 acre farm in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. He decided that instead of raising cattle he was going to grow his own vegetables instead. He was looking forward watching his fresh veggies grow. One night Farmer Fred went to bed early and it poured rain. The next morning all his vegetables had arms, legs and were able to talk. The Fresh Veggie Family consists of Christopher Corn, Olive and Oliver Onion, Mrs. Tomato, Calvin Carrot and Cameron Cauliflower. were having a great time together.
“Great spontaneity,” laughed Oliver.
“Absolutely,” said Christopher, now dancing with Mrs. Tomato and Olive. “This is what I want from our band. I want spontaneity and I want us to have fun.”
“I agree,” said Calvin, stepping away from the drums and joining in the dancing. “Too many bands lose themselves in the serious side of things and they forget to have fun.”
“True,” said Christopher, heading back over to where his microphone was standing. “We are a band but we are also entertainers.”
Christopher started singing again and everyone took their places back onstage and they continued with the song they were practising.
“Mrs. Tomato!” yelled Olive. “You are singing my part.”
“No I am not!” yelled Mrs. Tomato. “Christopher, please tell Olive I am singing the point you and discussed.”
“Girls,” said Christopher in his most calming voice. “Mrs. Tomato, we never finalized that you would be singing Olive’s part.”
“I am sorry,” said Mrs. Tomato, starting to calm down because of the sound of Christopher voice. “I thought we agreed.”
“No,” said Christopher. “We discussed that we would ask Olive if she wanted to switch parts.”
“Yes,” said Mrs. Tomato. “You are right. I guess I jumped the gun too quickly.”
“I don’t want arguments between you and Olive,” said Christopher. “We were all just having a good time dancing and laughing.”
“I apologize for getting so upset,” said Olive. “Mrs. Tomato, if you want to switch parts with me, that is okay. All I want is what is best for the band.”
“Now that is better,” said Christopher, starting to sing again. “Let’s start this one from the top.”
Except for that one argument between Mrs. Tomato and Olive, the rest of the practise session went perfectly and the whole Fresh Veggie family had a ton of fun together.
“I am very happy with Loud Garden,” said Christopher after the practise session. “We are going to go places.”
