Once there were four siblings (or sibling-in-laws) whose names were Crystal, April, Jared, and Ryan, and it has been told on another blog that they had a remarkable garden. And it was during this time in which the siblings (or sibling-in-laws) lived together that they did delight in working together on a great many things and did become Kings and Queens of the garden on a street called Greenway. But this is a story to be told by the Kings and Queens, for this is not the story I wish to tell.
My story begins 3 seasons ago when Queen Crystal (long may she garden) imparted her wisdom and experience on a very inquisitive group of noblemen (and women of course, but we are not writing in the era of political correctness). These noblemen (and women) learned a great many things from Queen Crystal (long may she garden), one of them being Princess H. Princess H desired with all of her heart to follow the teachings of this outstanding and righteous Queen, but she did lack the green thumb required to take on such a task. It was then and there that Princess H did, however, decide to start her very own compost bin and create what would later become the foundation of her dream. Three long years Princess H did compost. And for three long years she saved the earth from rotting vegetable and fruit peels tied up in plastic bags never to be seen again, but to be smelled to the ends of the earth in overflowing dumps scattered from here to the farthest reaches of the oceans.
At the time Princess H did not know the good she was doing, but it was the good Queen April and King Ryan (long may they save) that did impress upon her the need we all have to take care of this beautiful land that we have been give. Not one, but both of them have one mind in this matter, and it is said in not so many words this way, "This land. This land that we live in that has been given to us by our God. It is this land that we must take care of and cherish and till. By throwing your garbage into a landfill we are polluting this great earth of ours. It is the people of this earth, the ones who live in this very day and age, that take away all that our children stand to inherit." Now those of you that have heard tale of Queen April and King Ryan (long may they save) know that these are not the exact words that they would have used. In fact, had it been King Ryan speaking, he would have stopped several times to spit something from his mouth, and Queen April would have stood close by rolling her eyes like any good woman would do when her husband was off on one of his rants. At any rate, Queen April did agree with King Ryan on this stance to save the earth, and King Ryan would have said these words if he was more eloquent in his speech, but alas, he is not.
It was after this manner of composting that Princess H did continue for many years. At times, her husband, Prince Wilhelm, did stake out a place for her to plant a garden, but that was done to much avail. Princess H was fearful of undertaking such a project. It was not for many years and a few failed attempts that we come to the point in the story that I wish to begin...
