"Good Day" replied the Rabbit King. "May one inquire what you are doing?"
"I am about my vegetables this day" replied the Farmer. "I have here leeks, onions, cabbage, carrots and yams."
The Rabbit nodded in admiration as he snaked his way through the vegetable rows. "Very impressive" he responded. "But I am wondering how you are protecting such things as carrots from worms."
"Worms?" asked the Farmer.
"Indeed" respond the Rabbit. "They have destroyed a Farmer's crops just over the hill. How do you know that your vegetables are fine?"
The Farmer looked to his crops. He lifted up the overgrowths and searched around the soil edges. "I can see nothing on top" he mused "but what about underneath?"
The Rabbit nodded sagaciously. "Perhaps" he suggested quietly, "I might dig a little bit - perhaps around one carrot - and see if all is well."
Two hours later the Rabbit hopped on while the Farmer stood secure in knowledge of a worm-free garden, looking at the large empty space where his carrots had been.
