The 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. enjoyed the feast Christopher had prepared for them. He had slices of ham, turkey and beef. He had cheese and freshly baked rolls. He had potato and macaroni salad too.
“This food is so tasty,” said Calvin.
“It sure is,” said Mrs. Tomato.
“I have a surprise dessert for all of you,” said Christopher, carrying a tray of bowls of ice-cream. “I think you are all going to enjoy this very much. Whatever you do though, eat it slow. I have heard you can get brain freeze.”
They were enjoying the ice-cream too much to eat it slow. Each one of them had brain freeze.
“I told you,” said Christopher.
The Fresh Veggie family enjoyed their afternoon off. They were able to relax and get to know each other better. The next day at practice, they felt refreshed and they even sounded better than ever.
“We need to do that more often,” said Christopher.
The Fresh Veggie family agreed with him so, once a month they decided to have a feast together.
