SCENE: the Muntanui kitchen at breakfast time this morning. FARMER WAN and his parents, MARGARET and DAVID are seated at the dining room table. Enter FARMER NIK.
FARMER NIK: You know those two saffron plants we've got in the raised beds?
FARMER NIK: Turns out they're not actually saffron plants at all...
MARGARET: Are they weeds?
FARMER NIK: Er... no. They're pea plants. From the pea staw.
ALL: (general merriment)
FARMER WAN: So, are you going to put a retraction on the blog?
FARMER NIK: I could just delete that photo from the slideshow...
FARMER WAN: Guess this is why we're doing that Horticulture course, eh?
fARMER NIK: (smiles ruefully and prepares to start typing)
