Come along Elsa you’re finding these big ox-eye daisies bitter to the taste I know, and they have grown rank and taken over the field, so utilise this gate here into my better meadow.

I know well myself how they taste as my partner often adds them to some of his fancy complicated recipes from time to time.

I’ll let the sheep in here, they will make short work of them.
