X is a very difficult letter. We found some plants beginning with X but we didn’t know whether we could eat them, and this blog is about food! We eat the cross-roads between the vegetable patches as that is where we do our lawn-mowing duties most diligently. Even Hugo was diligent about lawn-mowing. It means we work hard at it and pay attention to detail. Lawn-mowing means eating the grass so mummy doesn’t have to shorten it with a lawn-mower. And I am calling cross-roads X-roads as they make a cross like an X.
Usually when mummy lays our runs out in the garden between the vegetable patches the X-roads is where our runs meet. Sometimes one of us will get the space in the middle of the X-roads, sometimes she will angle our runs so we both meet in the middle. It’s hard to explain. I’m hoping Mummy will find a picture of the X-roads. A picture tells a thousand words they say. I don’t want to use a thousand words to tell you. You might get bored.
