When Brian had finished ploughing he drove back to the cottage. He washed his hands then looked in the fridge. There was a note attached to two sandwiches from Serene. He picked up the note and read… Missing you already hurry up and get finished so we can be together; Love Serene X

He took the sandwiches and made a flask of coffee then hooked up the onion set planter this machine saved countless hours where it dug the hole and dropped in the onion set at the correct depth whilst a blade at the back covered them over.

It would only take him an hour to do the field as the hard bit was done. He jumped back into the tractor and set off. He opened the sandwiches and took a bite.

It was cheddar cheese with chives that Serene had made herself. It was delicious.

“That along with the cottage cheese will definitely be on the supermarket shelves soon. He lined up the tractor again and then began. Turning on the radio again Brian had to laugh it was the group “Bread with “I Want to Make It with You” Now was he thinking cheese here; Definitely not he thought.


“How many plants are we pollinating Jackie?’

“I reckon we should do a hundred to start with love; watch and I will show you how to do it.”

You will need a magnifying glass and tweezers so you can collect the pollen from one plant and transfer it to the other. Now we don’t want the plum as the main carrier so we pollinate the cherry one with the pollen from the plum see.” Easy peezy lemon squeezy.”

Adrianna set to work and she soon got the hang of it. Each pot had to have a label telling what variety it was.

“Now young lady these tomatoes are really special to me because guess what they are going to be called?’

“No I don’t know; what?’

“They are going to be called “Adrianna’s Choice Cherry Plum Tomatoes”

“That’s lovely Jackie thank you.”

“Don’t thank me it was your idea; we wont know for another six months what they are going to taste like but if they’re anything like your lips we will be onto a winner.”

Adrianna smiled and then kissed Jackie really passionately.

“Wow! That was nice said Jackie can we try that again. Yes,’ but not here lets go back to the wagon.”

“Now Adrianna I think we should wait don’t you; plus I need to get us some protection here.’

“I want you Jackie, so go get yourself what you need and I will be waiting in the wagon.’
