Animal, Vegetable, Mineral

Every year (since my first and only triumph in the ‘any other vegetable‘ category) I fail to enter anything in the village show, and then on the day itself regret my timidity – after all, I’m pretty sure we would have cleaned up this year in the ‘novelty salt and pepper set’ class.*

And then I see an entry of this calibre (in the Primary 1-3 ‘vegetable animal’ competition) and realise that I am totally and utterly outclassed. Sometimes it’s better just to know your limits.

* you don’t have to make the novelty salt and pepper set – you just have to own it.

    Genuine question: is it meant to be a tortoise or a hedgehog?

    I assume from the fact it’s eating a piece of lettuce it’s a tortoise.
