Once upon a time there was a Beefmaster tomato living in Matron's Greenhouse.
All of a sudden one day the colour changed a little as the tomato was feeling the sunshine on its back and decided to start ripening.
So each day as the sun shone the tomato gradually started to change colour, a bit more each day.
The sun continued to shine and the Beefmaster tomato continued to get redder and redder.
The big tomato in Matron's greenhouse was beautiful and ripe and had started to smell of tomato.
But hey! what happened overnight? Something had taken a great big nibble from one side of the lovely, ripe tomato. Was it a giant slug?
Or was it a giant, yellow, four-legged, furry pest? I wonder....
So the beautiful, ripe Beefmaster tomato was turned into the most wonderful lunch a person could have. Fresh buffalo mozzarella, home grown basil, salt, black pepper, olive oil and garlic.
There wasn't much left on the plate after it was finished.
In fact there was absolutely nothing left after it was finished. And Matron and the giant, yellow, four-legged, furry pest lived happily ever after.
