Once upon a time, there was a farm. On this farm lived two people, five cats,
some chickens, ducks, turkeys and a whole bunch of earthworms. There were many vegetable and flower plants and even some fruit trees. The two people worked hard to be farmers and they even hired people to help them grow the vegetables, raise the poultry and tend the farm. Sometimes, they asked others to join them on the farm to do a little work and then celebrate the day with good food.
Sadly, a SNORT came and visited the farm and ate the well. There was no water for the farmers, the cats, the chickens, ducks, turkeys or people who visited the farm to eat good food.
Perhaps the SNORT felt that the farm had sufficient water since the earthworms were wearing water wings. After all, the SNORT had evidence that there was plenty of water on the farm when it watched a truck get stuck trying to deliver a load of black dirt to the farm. But, it still might have felt a little bit guilty and it helped pull the truck out.
Work on the farm continued. Mr Tyler found a way to put in an automatic vent for the high tunnel. The farmers agreed that a vent that opened and closed without electricity would be excellent, and so they found a product that did just that.
Then, a good thing happened! People came to the farm and they put on gloves. Gloves could mean several things. Perhaps it was cold outside? It is possible that it was a fashion statement.
The raised bed frames that Mr Denis built were moved and dirt was placed on them. Perhaps with a little more dirt the farmers would be able to put plants in these frames. But, while the farmers and workers were happy with this, it was again unlikely that the cats, chickens, ducks or turkeys really cared. The earthworms, however, decided to move in.
Suddenly, an ettercap crawled from the stump in the front yard. A whole host of visitors on the farm worked feverishly to prevent the creature from escaping, efficiently placing the very things that will stop any self-respecting ettercap from terrorizing people ever again - grass and twigs. A tragedy was averted. The farmers and workers rejoiced. The earthworms continued to move their belongings to the raised beds. The cats, chickens, ducks and turkeys ignored the whole thing.
In fact, the people who visited completed many items on a whole list of tasks.
The next day, when all of the glove wearing visitors had left, the farm was invaded by the giant HAAAACK and its mate. The farmers, workers, cats, chickens, ducks, turkeys and earthworms looked on with concern.
The HAAAACK began to make a noise.
And it made that noise ALL day long until....
Now the farmers, workers, cats, chickens, ducks, turkeys and earthworms understood how the HAAAACK got its name. None of them were pleased to have learned this.
Something was lurking just on the other side of the farm...
