Maurice and Co. had a wonderful vacation away from their everyday lives of having to forage for food, hide from predators and keep out from under the feet of giant gardeners. They slept their days away, only to emerge at sundown for an evening of eating and frolicking.
As it goes, all vacations must come to an end and Maurice and his friend's vacation ended yesterday.
I couldn't do it. I was giving them names for heaven's sake!
They were set free last night to live out the rest of their days eating our lettuce, cilantro and tomatoes.
And I have to say I'm relieved to have them out of my kitchen. For all of those out there who can raise animals and then eat them, I commend you.
I obviously couldn't!
